The hard work of some local parents paid off, and now they can keep on giving their children the gift of a great place to play come summer, thanks to a generous donor.
Newscenter 16 told you about the campaign to buy the Knollwood Soccer Field a couple of weeks ago.
The field was leased to the Michiana Soccer Association since the 1970’s, but this year, the late owner's family put the property up for sale to liquidate her estate.
Parents came together in a grass roots effort to raise money so that the MSA could buy the field and insure that it remained a soccer field.
They no longer need to worry. A charitable organization owned by the Basney family of Basney Honda purchased the field when they heard about the campaign.
