September 29, 2017, Tipp City, Ohio – The Tipp Pride Association Board of Directors announced today that the organization has received a substantial donation from local business owners and residents Rick and Lyn Heinl for the construction of Tipp City’s new community stadium. The generous gift will continue the ongoing fundraising to support stadium construction.

Mashell Stith, president of TPA shared, “Rick and Lyn really know how to put a smile on this girl’s face! Their generous donation shows how this stadium is going to be built. One resident, one parent, one community leader at a time.”

The new Tipp City stadium will be constructed at the location of the current stadium within City Park. Replacement of the field, stands, buildings and scoreboard are estimated to cost approximately 5.6 million dollars. Tipp Pride Association is seeking private funding for this project.

“We are extremely grateful for the Heinl’s generous gift for the new football stadium,” said J.D. Foust, Athletic Director for Tipp City Schools.

Tipp Pride Association intends to highlight significant donors and sponsors at each home football game this season. “There is no better place to provide recognition to donors than at the very same venue we are working to provide upgrades”, states Scott George, vice-president of TPA.

The new stadium will increase available seating for home, visitor, and band to 3,500.

With a successful fundraising campaign, the stadium project could begin construction at the end of the 2017 football season.
