Eau Claire sled hill receives special donation

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- An Eau Claire man is behind a big donation for improvements to an age old ski and sledding hill.

The Pinehurst Project says it received stock valued at more than $10,000 from Arthur "Gene" Rogers of Eau Claire.

Rogers says the gift was in memory of his wife Irene who learned to ski at Pinehurst many years ago.

The Pinehurst Project plans to use the money to make improvements to the park including rope tows and ski and snowboard features.
