Community support sought to match Tony Hawk Foundation grant

Updated 4 years ago by Brian Chambers, Director of Communications City of Huntington

HUNTINGTON -- The City of Huntington and the Greater Huntington Park and Recreation District are partnering with the Foundation For The Tri-State Community, Inc. to raise $5,000 for construction of the skate park at Harris Riverfront Park.


The Tony Hawk Foundation approved the City of Huntington to receive a challenge grant in February. The challenge grant requires the City and the local community to raise $5,000 before the end of July 2014.


Once the money is raised, the Tony Hawk Foundation will match the amount. The funding will go toward the second phase of construction of the skate park, which will be built on the western end of Harris Riverfront Park.


The Foundation, a 501(c)(3), will accept, process and distribute any funds donated for the skate park construction. Tax deductible checks to the skate park fund can be made out and forwarded to: Foundation for the Tri-State Community, Inc., PO Box 2096, Ashland, KY 41105-2096. Make sure to note “Skate Park,” “Harris Riverfront” or “Hawk Grant Match” in the memo line of the check.
