Restroom Construction Projected for October 2015

Restroom Construction Projected for October 2015

The restroom fund is flush. Approval of the U. S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development Program Grant for $45,900 was received in May. The School Governing Board accepted the Friends matching funds donation of $56,100 in June. Architect Al Hopper is currently drawing up construction plans along with contractors who are completing electrical and plumbing plans. Restroom construction is projected for October 2015.

We extend our gratitude to the Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold Company Foundation, Bisbee Area Social Investment Fund who awarded this project $30,000. We are also grateful to the Cochise Community Foundation who awarded the Friends $3000.  Also with the help of many friends and supporters, the Friends raised over $6,000 with a successful Indiegogo fund-raising campaign. The remaining funds were raised with the help of many donors, sales of merchandise and the annual Copper City Classic Vintage Base Ball Tournament which each year raises about $5000. 

We look forward to new restrooms for the upcoming tournament scheduled for April 16th and 17th, 2016

With the help of our Friends, Indiegogo Campaign hit a game-winning Grand Slam

The Friends of Warren Ballpark, a non-profit organization are pleased to announce that we hit game winning grand slam with our Indiegogo Campaign We set a goal to raise $6000 and raised $6136. With the help of many friends who both contributed and spread the word the campaign was a success. In addition to the Indiegogo donations, the Friends received another $1500 in other donations. We received many local donations but also had donations from as far away as England.

We are raising funds to replace the existing deteriorated 75-year-old restrooms with modern, ADA accessible restrooms that are estimated to cost $90,000. The funds will be used for matching funds as we continue to search for grant money.

A tip of the hat and a hearty “huzzah” (1860 base ball parlance for thank you) from the Friends of Warren. And remember ghosts of old ballplayers don’t need restrooms but real people do.

The currrent bathrooms are ancient and not handicapped accessbile. They can't be upgraded without compromising the historic grandstand. The Friends are raising funds and applying for grants to build free-standing modern bathrooms to replace the aging bathrooms. Please help. Any size donation is welcomed. Donate here!
