LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A last-minute benefactor will help Henryville, Ind., kids get a new playground that will double as a marker for the town's perseverance after the March 2012 tornado.
Kosair Charities of Louisville is pledging $15,000 to help Henryville Youth Sports leaders build the program, Jennifer Badger of HYS told WDRB News. That money will be added to other pledges so that organizers can tap a larger, matching $50,000 grant from the AmeriHealth Mercy Foundation.
Earlier on Tuesday, organizers warned they might have to scrap plans altogether because they had lost another pledge that would've helped meet the deadline for the matching grant.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Plans to build a new playground for Henryville, Indiana kids will be shelved if a lot of money isn't raised quickly.
A Henryville Youth Sports official says the $25,000 which had been pledged for the project has fallen through.
Officials say the group has until February 18th to raise the remaining $20,000 needed to tap a $50,000 grant from the AmeriHealth Mercy Foundation.
The playground project will likely be canceled if the money needed isn't found.
Organizers say the playground would be a symbol of Henryville's resilience, following last year's deadly tornadoes.
