We Met Our Match!
Front Bubble Construction Continues Aug. 16
Thanks to many generous supporters, The Fort raised over $38,000 for the Capital Campaign in June and July, far exceeding our matching gift goal of $10,000 provided by an anonymous patron in kicking off Phase II of the Capital Campaign!
Phase II, Part I construction finished in early-June after removing the front bubble, resurfacing the courts and adding a ninth court (creating another 5,400 hours of court time annually for patrons).
The front bubble remains down for the remainder of the summer in preparation for Phase II, Part 2, scheduled for August 16-September 9 with the installation of our new bubble, as well as new LED lighting and energy efficient air conditioning!
In other exciting news, patrons Ruth and Santosh Krishnan increased their Capital Campaign gift from $20,000 to $50,000 for naming rights to Court Four in the front bubble. Court Four will be known as the Santosh & Ruth Krishnan Court. The Krishnans join Tom and Michele Mingo (Court 1) in have courts named after them as part of the Capital Campaign.
Naming rights are still available for the seven remaining courts, as well as both the front and back bubbles. For more information about naming rights packages, please click here.
