WHITEWATER, Wis. – Over 100 attendees at the 10th Annual Friends of the Program, Ltd. (FOTP) Charity Golf Outing helped raise $11,589 for the Treyton Kilar Field of Dreams Project. The record setting event for FOTP was held Saturday, August 20 at Prairie Woods Golf Course in Avalon, Wis.
On Friday, October 7th, during half time at the Whitewater High School Homecoming Football game, a presentation of the check was made by FOTP Board Members Jeremy Niemuth, Mike Kachel, and Rob Nelson to Mike and Mary Kilar, parents of Treyton Kilar.
“We are very excited to contribute to youth athletics in Whitewater through the Treyton Kilar Field of Dreams project,” stated FOTP President Jeremy Niemuth. “The support for this year’s event was tremendous and was responsible for our record setting efforts. The FOTP Board wants to thank all the sponsors, volunteers and participants for their continued support.”
The proposed Treyton’s Field of Dreams is a 220-225 foot, youth-sized field with concrete dugouts, fencing, concession stands and lights to be located at Starin Park in Whitewater.
“We are touched by the outpouring of support by this entire community and the Friends of the Program,” said Mary Kilar. “Friends of the Program reaches out to so many worthwhile programs year after year and to have this support for the Treyton Kilar Field of Dreams means so much to our family.”
“We know this field will be built and provide a place for thousands of our youth to achieve their dreams for years to come,” added Kilar. “Thank you isn’t enough, but it is heartfelt.”
