HOME OF THE BRAVES CONSTRUCTION NEAR COMPLETION!
The new Home of the Braves athletic facility is nearly complete. The work is currently focused on finishing out the interior of the building and the installation of donor signage, plaques and large pavers. The building is currently open for use by the fall sports teams preparing for the upcoming season."
The building features multiple locker rooms at field level, centralized spaces for coaches, trainers and referees as well as conveniently located upper field restrooms and concessions.
It will be the new home for many sports teams including football, lacrosse, track, cross country, baseball, softball, tennis and more.
And, the new Welcome Plaza will tie together the entire athletic complex from the practice field to the baseball/softball fields all the way down to Tomahawk Stadium via the new Monumental Stairway. Most importantly, it will create a large outdoor gathering space perfect for district events and celebrations.
The Indian Hill School District and the Indian Hill Foundation would like to thank Mr. Peter Klekamp, and Mr. Craig Sumerel who generously agreed to co-chair this fundraising endeavor. Mr. Klekamp and Mr. Sumerel quickly assembled a volunteer cabinet dedicated to taking on a task never before attempted in Indian Hill – raising community funds for a school project. This committee of zealous and committed volunteers, led by Mr. Klekamp and Mr. Sumerel, reached out to current parents, alumni, and community members championing the benefits the new facility would bring to both students and the community. Over 300 families and business contributed to this project ranging from leadership gifts to the purchase of small pavers. Additionally, this campaign generated the largest gift ever to the Indian Hill Foundation – a transformative matching grant of $500,000.
The new Home of the Braves is the direct result of the bold philanthropic support by our community for our community. Thank you!
