For the love of Memorial Field

Group is hoping the community will step up and help raise the extra $1 million neened to rebuild local sports venues.

“Many people who are involved or interested in sports in the community know about our effort,” he said. “But there are a lot of people who have no idea about what we’re doing.

“We want to try and get those people involved, and hopefully get the word out about what we’re trying to do.”

Along with putting up a banner on a busy Burbank street, Gudzin said there are plans in the works to send information about the fundraising effort to local homeowners with their monthly utility bill, and even have the information broadcast on Burbank’s cable-access channel.

“We want to hopefully have the fundraising complete by May, close to the end of the school year,” Hastings said.

When that effort is complete, all that will be left will be the construction of the new Memorial Field project. As of now, Gudzin said there is no concrete timetable for when the construction will begin.
