The Pulaski School District announced on Thursday that the phase one fundraising goal has been met for the Red Raider Field of Dreams. Thanks in part to the generous donations from the community, phase one was completed, which included Saputo Stadium, the new football, track, and band complex that opened on September 2nd. The total cost of the first phase was $3.2 million. Fundraising is set to begin for the second phase, which has estimates of costing $2.4 million. Already, the school has raised a total of $400,000. Superintended Bec Kurzynske said of the fundraising, “The Field of Dreams Steering Committee has done an outstanding job of advocating for this project. They have invested in our community, and we are grateful for their efforts in securing funding for Phase one and presenting fresh fundraising and donation initiatives as we eagerly continue work for Phase two.” As of last November, the Pulaski Community School District Board of Education authorized the borrowing of an amount not exceeding $2.8 million in connection with the intention it would be fully repaid through donations from the public. Just over a year later it’s becoming a reality. The next phase will include two fields each for baseball and softball, three tennis courts, practice fields, and the re-excavation of the soccer complex.
