Family Fun Night fund raiser results in another $11,000 for new swimming pool

Last Friday evening a number of people enjoyed a Family Fun Night featuring the music of NeonLIVE and Prairie Melody Makers at the swimming pool fund raiser at the Prairie Event Center. There were games for the children and over $3,000 in door prizes pleased the winners. As a result, over $11,000.00 will be added to the pool fund this week bringing the total to over $562,000.00.

With a number of activities since June, including Urbank’s Summer Fest, Miltona Tornado Days in July and Parkers Prairie Fall Festival in August, the monies continue to flow in for the Swimming Pool Fund, and contributors toward the Million Dollar Challenge continue to climb with an additional $48,906.00, bringing the total donations to $551,380.00 with over 50 donors as of August 18th.

Anyone can help make it happen by “Making a Splash” in the Million Dollar Challenge. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated. T-shirts are available for purchase with all proceeds going into the swimming pool fund.
