On Monday, May 23, Detroit PAL was invited to accept a check from the Detroit Tigers Foundation! The donation of $300,000 for the Kids at the Corner campaign was the largest gift ever from the Foundation. There to accept the check was Detroit PAL CEO Tim Richey and Youth of the Year, Arianna McMiller. They were joined by Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and President and CEO of Ilitch Holdings Chris Ilitch.
The donation will go towards helping PAL reach the goal of $20 million to build a stadium at the site of Historic Tiger Stadium. The project will include a multi-purpose field, training and banquet center, 2,500 seat stadium, concessions, locker rooms, and a permanent home for Detroit PAL!
