We are expecting to start the concrete process of the court within the next two weeks!!
Bob Barker has very generously donated to the project! His kindness has put us very close to our fundraising goal! Thanks Bob Barker!!
The Economic Development Committee has graciously donated to the project. I can’t thank the community enough for coming together to support my dream!
We are making steady progress on the road to completing the court. We are waiting to hear back from Spalding. who will hopefully donate the goals. I have also been in contact with First Bank and John Deere, who will hopefully donate to the project.
There are four companies in the concrete industry that we believe will provide the material for the court. However, we still have to raise money for the labor to place the concrete. This will total approximately $5,000. If we can secure donations for the concrete and goals, much of the heavy lifting for the project will be complete. Even still, money still needs to be raised for landscaping, and other finishing touches that will total approximately $1,500. If you or anyone you know can help with these needs, please visit the donate link below, or leave a comment on the blog post. Join me to make Fuquay-Varina a better place.

On March 21, I took the project to the town board of commissioners to ask for approval. The board doesn’t vote on the day of the meeting, so everyone please pray for the project that it may be approved.
Our next step is to work on concrete donations. If anyone reading the website knows anyone who will do grading of the site, installing forms, and pouring the concrete for free or a discounted price, please slide over to the comment page and let us know. Please leave your name and number and we can discuss more on the subject over the phone.
We are also going to have another fundraiser coming on the weekend on June 2nd and 3rd! A 3v3 basketball tournament is going to go down at the community center. Ages will be from middle school on up boys and girls! We are looking forward to this fundraiser and more details will be released soon.
Stay tuned for the lastest and greatest on the project and how YOU can help!

For our first fundraiser, we sold Christmas trees. We had a fifty by fifty foot lot next to Sweet Creations in Varina. My dad and I built light stands and were able to light up the lot at night. We also had a wide range of inventory, including six to thirteen foot trees, wreaths, and homemade Christmas light balls! We managed to get started on the fundraising, and are still progressing towards the goal.
