What are our needs?
We need to raise a total of 3,500,000 for the entire Hoover Ridge Outdoor Recreation Center Project. We currently have 2.1 million in committed and donated funds, leaving 1.4 million to raise for all phases of the project! YAY us!
To get started, we need to complete funding for Phase 1, which includes all the infrastructure - roads, walking paths, electrical work, plumbing, restrooms, concession stand, etc. Phase 2, which includes the Playground and Splash Pad, already has a donor willing to commit funding for the phase.
We need $680,000 to complete Phase 1 - Infrastructure. Can you help us reach our goal for 2024???
