CVU turf committee in weekend fundraiser
The Nordic Cup soccer tournament this past weekend brought teams from New England and Canada to Chittenden County and also helped the Champlain Valley Union High turf committee in its efforts to generate dollars for the field turf project.
With close to 30 volunteers selling concessions, soliciting parking donations and sponsorships, some $5,300 was raised in the two-day event at the three fields at CVU, according to committee spokesperson Kelly Stoll.
“It was a large event for us,” Stoll said.
Stoll said funds raised to date stand at $185,000.
The proposed project would fund two turf fields, bleachers and lights at CVU’s athletic facility. Total cost is estimated at $2 million.
