LANSING, MI (WLNS) – The Lansing community will get to play soccer at Beacon Soccer Field once construction is finished.
It’s all thanks to donations brought in from a crowdfunding campaign that began on April 24, 2015.
The goal was to raise $60,000 before May 22, with an all or nothing campaign.
On May 20, the total reached $60,000 and as of Wednesday night, the total was at $61,662.
The Michigan Economic Development Corporation said they will provide a $60,000 grant if the goal was reached before May 22.
The park is to be located at Ferris Park, two blocks north of the State Capitol. It will feature a synthetic turf field, solar lighting and kick boards around the field.
