If the city can raise $50,000, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation will match that donation. They have already received a separate $50,000 donation from a local doctor that will not impact the matching amount. Fundraising will be open through Wednesday, September 13 at 11:30 p.m. The campaign is about $8,000 behind its goal.
