So where does all the money that I donate go? Well, we’re glad you asked!
Field House Renovation
We need to raise $400,000 to fund the last portion of a 1.2 million dollar renovation project to the Holstein Park Fieldhouse. Click here to see renovation details. [PDF]
For 100 years the Holstein Park Fieldhouse has been the center of our community. Since 1912 our fieldhouse has seen thousands of Chicagoans enjoy her basketball courts, swimming pool, and has served our neighborhood children.
And now, as our fieldhouse begins to show signs of her age, we need your help to return her to a glory that will last another century.
The Friends of Holstein Park urge you to please consider a tax-deductible contribution to the Holstein Park Fieldhouse Restoration Fund. With your help, we can ensure the future of this magnificent institution for generations to come.
We Heart the Park
In 2006 our efforts paid off as we helped to fund a complete rehab of the playground on the north side of Holstein Park. We have also purchased air conditioners, printers and shades for the gym, in addition to much more. Donated funds also put on events like the Family Valentine’s Dance, Teen Valentine’s Dance, Easter Egg Hunt, Bucktown Apple Pie Contest and Circus In The Parks.
