Magazine Prize Money Going Toward Hogan's Fountain Pavilion Preservation

A group that's trying to save the Hogan's Fountain Pavilion in Cherokee Park has been given a boost from Reader's Digest magazine.The group, called "Save the Hogan's Fountain Pavilion" is trying to raise $82,000 to repair the roof of the structure. The pavilion, commonly called the tepee, is not in the master plan for Metro Parks, though city officials are open to keeping it if it's repaired.The group was active in a Reader's Digest competition meant to raise money for community projects, and this week, the magazine gave Metro Government $10,000 for the group's efforts. That's on top of a $1 thousand award given earlier this month.Co-chair Tammy Madigan says the award puts the group about one fourth of the way to its goal."The ten thousand dollars actually helps trigger a five thousand dollar matching fund offer from Tina Ward-Pugh.  And with the Reader’s Digest money and that pledge from Tina Ward-Pugh and our donations that we’ve raised we’re at $22,230," she says.The group plans to attend Mayor Greg Fischer’s citizen budget hearings beginning next week to ask for further funding.
