Group Hopeful Prize Money Will Go Toward Hogan's Fountain Pavilion

Representatives from Reader’s Digest Wednesday presented Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer’s office with a $1,000 dollar check that could go toward preserving the Hogan's Fountain Pavillion in Cherokee Park.A group dedicated to preserving the structure—often called the teepee—petitioned Reader's Digest for the money as part of a contest the magazine was holding to fund community projects. The 46-year-old pavillion is not part of the Metro Parks master plan, but the group is dedicated to raising $80 thousand to repair and keep the pavilion. They've raised about $5,000 so far.Fischer chief of community building Sadiqa Reynolds says the city isn't opposed to the efforts."We appreciate the efforts of the citizens in Jefferson County and Louisville I mean it’s just exciting that they care enough to even go to the trouble," she says.The mayor has final say whether the money will go toward the pavilion or not. Louisville is still in the running to win $10,000 in the contest, and Reynolds says the mayor will decide where the money goes when the contest ends on Monday.
