The Miracle League of Newton County continues raise funds and build awareness for the need for a Miracle Field, which would serve more than 2,500 children with mental and/or physical disabilities.
Recent donations included
- $8,600 raised in late August at the Miracle League Classic Baseball Tournament, which was sponsored by General Mills
- A $10,000 gift made by Evans Tool & Die
- A $5,000 grant received from the Snapping Shoals Operation Round-up Program
- And a grant from SKC in honor of the opening of its new facility
Mayfield's Hardware hosted an "After Hours Event" Thursday evening to benefit the Miracle League and donated a portion of all proceeds to the local effort, said Tamara Richardson, local Miracle League consultant.
The Miracle League is again selling 2012 Chick-fil-A calendars for $6 at the Turner Lake Complex and the Newton County Water Authority, located on Brown Bridge Road. The Miracle League earns $3 for each calendar sold.
Each month comes with a free coupon.
The Miracle League also partnered with Square Perk Café on to build a SquareCrow.
