PENNINGTON FACILITY UPDATE
The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows will start demolition of the old YMCA building on Foster Drive in January. Construction will begin in Spring 2013 for the new William N. Pennington Facility, a 50,000 square foot Boys & Girls Club in southwest Reno.
The initial fundraising phase for the William N. Pennington Facility has been completed reaching the initial $3.5 million goal from community foundations. The project began with the generosity of the William N. Pennington Foundation, which committed $9 million toward the building, with a $3.5 million match requirement. The Club added an additional $1.5 million to incorporate infrastructure upgrades and the first two years of operating funds, bringing the total to be raised to $5 million. The Club will now begin its final fundraising phase with opportunities for corporations, families and individual donors to contribute to the project.
