Fundraising effort begins for La Grange Park Veterans Memorial
LA GRANGE PARK – Nearly $30,000 has been raised for a new Veterans Memorial planned for Memorial Park in La Grange Park.
The Community Park District of La Grange Park launched a fundraising campaign for the memorial over the July 4 weekend. So far, it has received $25,000 in pledges from individuals and businesses, along with nearly $2,000 in advance payments for engraved bricks that will be featured at the memorial.
The park district formed a Veterans Memorial Committee last year in hopes to raise $85,000 for the project by the end of 2013. The park district has also filed two grant requests to raise money for the memorial and plans to apply for more.
