We are trying to raise $474,000 to build a 220-225 foot, youth-sized field with concrete dugouts, fencing, concession stands and lights. This will provide a safe place for children and families to celebrate life and learn how to make responsible, life-long decisions.
Although Treyton is now playing on the “real” field of dreams in heaven, with your help we can help thousands of other children have a better future, and learn responsible life-long decision making skills.
If you would like to support this wonderful project financially, with your time and talent or providing many needed materials, please contact us. Thank you!
