A final total over just over $10,000 was given by the Parkersburg/Vienna community at various donation drop off sites around the area on Friday and Saturday to help Save Stadium Field..
The Stadium Committee desperately needs to come up with another $6000,000 just to finish the home side of the stadium in time for the upcoming soccer and football season. Around $2 million is needed to complete the entire project.
Money continues to come in on a daily basis, including a $12,000 donation from 100-year-old former PHS librarian Virginia Neptune with the challenge for others to follow suit and give as much as possible so Big Red athletes can perform at home in 2013.
There were seven donation locations around Parkersburg and Vienna manned by Big Red athletes, cheerleaders, Red Wings and coaches. Raffle tickets were also sold.
Checks can be made out to PHS Stadium Committee and sent to the high school. They are tax deductible. Or online contributions can be made by clicking on the Pay Pal logo found under the Save The Stadium t-shirt picture on the left hand side of this home page.
