MAC gets $17,000, nears park project goal

The entertainment pavilion and restrooms for Central Park are $3,000 away from becoming reality, as Marion Advancement Campaign President Todd Heitschmidt announced the receipt of $17,000 of donations Tuesday.

“We have been greatly blessed with pledges and donations for this project,” Heitschmidt said.

MAC has collected $78,000 in cash and $24,000 in pledges, for a total of $102,000. Heitschmidt wants to raise the final $3,000 by Dec. 31.

“This has been a multiyear fundraising effort, and the vision will become a reality in the next few months,” he said.

If the goal is met on time, Heitschmidt anticipates the pavilion will be ready for Chingawassa Days in June.
