Hat Tip — to Those Who Made Kroc Center Possible

Item: $1 million gift puts center on target: Albertson Foundation donates to Kroc project/Amy Cannata, Spokesman-Review

More Info: Supporters have the money they need to break ground next month on the $70 million Salvation Army Kroc Community Center in Coeur d’Alene, after the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation announced Saturday it will donate $1 million to meet a final fundraising goal. The announcement comes just three weeks before a deadline to raise $6 million in order to start building the community center this year.

DFO: Yeah, I know this was announced Saturday and was published in Sunday morning’s newspaper. But the weekends are slow around here. I wanted to give you an opportunity to tip your caps to Mayor Sandi Bloem, Major John Chamness, co-chair Jack Riggs (who’s the other co-chair), the Coeur d’Alene Indian Tribe, the Albertson foundation, and the hundreds of other contributors who made this facility possible. Saaaalute.
