Kroc Campaign Completed

Posted By on Wed, Nov 25, 2009 at 10:28 AM

I heard word of this last week, but the Salvation Army has announced it has raised the $25 million needed to begin the Kroc Center.

The funds will enable the Kroc Center to receive more than $62 million from the Ray and Joan Kroc estate.

“With only a few outstanding pledges and giving requests to finalize, we have begun the process of receiving construction bids and expect to have a formal groundbreaking ceremony in the early spring,” said Stephen Carpenter, director of operations for the Kroc Center, was quoted in a release as saying.

The 100,000-square-foot facility will include a 300-seat performing arts and worship center, a basketball court, indoor and outdoor sports fields, a fitness center, an aquatics center, and an outdoor splash park.
