The Bay Village "Home of the Rockets" team is making significant progress toward its goal of raising $1.6 million for the planned construction of a new building at Bay High Memorial Stadium that will house two team rooms, a new concession stand, restrooms and more. 

Home of the Rockets presented a check for their first installment of $350,000 to the Bay Village Board of Education on Monday. The account with the board now holds $750,000, including a board contribution of $400,000. Home of the Rockets also has more than a quarter of a million dollars in pledges lined up. Rockets fans can learn all about this project and donate at various levels, including seeing their name on a recognition brick, paver, plaque and more, at: www.homeoftherockets.org.

Home of the Rockets is a 501(c)(3) organization that raises money and provides other assistance for construction, renovation, or other improvements to facilities in the Bay Village city school district. Donations are tax deductible. All Home of the Rockets donors will receive confirmation of their donation for tax filing purposes.

Fans can also listen to a podcast with Superintendent Jodie Houseman interviewing Jon Ransom, a lead fundraiser for Home of the Rockets, at bit.ly/HOTRJonRansom. Ransom presents some very interesting details about why students athletes and the entire Bay Village community will benefit so much from this capital addition to Bay High Memorial Stadium.
