Girsh Park’s Fields Forever 3 Campaign is Rounding 3rd
The Fields Forever 3 Capital Campaign at Girsh Park will build a very important Fieldhouse to support the 4,000 families in our youth sports programs. We are now at a critical point where we must raise another $140,000 in the next thirty days to begin construction. Our goal is to open the new facility by Dos Pueblos Little League’s Opening Day in early March of 2015.
After a very generous $50,000 pledge from our contractor, Allen Associates, we are thrilled to announce that we have raised $460,000 over the last 16 months. We need to reach $600,000 to begin Phase I of construction by October 24th. Phase I will build much needed restrooms, storage, proper ADA sidewalks, major drainage improvements, utility upgrades, and we will replace our out-of-date playground. The restrooms are vitally important for programs such as Dos Pueblos Little League and AYSO Region 122. Most of all, children of special-needs in our adaptive sports programs desperately need accessible restrooms to make their experience more pleasant when they come out to play ball. These programs include DP Challengers, AYSO’s VIP Program, Challengers Flag Football, as well as Special Olympics Soccer Tournaments.
We are looking for community heroes to complete our campaign. All donations make a difference, and get us closer to our goal. We have several very exciting naming opportunities including the Fieldhouse, Batting Cages, Group Picnic Area, and Playground. The 350,000 people that use Girsh Park each year will greatly appreciate your contribution to this very important community project.
With the community’s support, The Foundation for Girsh Park successfully completed Fields Forever 1 and 2. With your help today, Fields Forever 3 will be a homerun!
