EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- The Pinehurst Project in Eau Claire just received information Wednesday morning that it got approval for $11,000 from the Buzz and Mary Ann Minton Family Fund.
The money is funded through the Eau Claire Community Foundation and will help build Pinehurst Park.
Sue Bornick with the Eau Claire Community Foundation said the board of trustees approved the funding Wednesday morning.
"We're really excited to give them a really good jumpstart for the Pinehurst project," said Bornick.
Bornick said the Buzz and Mary Ann Minton Family Fund also established their endowment fund to give directly as grants to the Pinehurst project. That means starting next year, the Pinehurst project will receive a grant from the family fund through the Eau Claire Community Foundation to support the project each year.
