The Foundation has financed the bulk of this project, through private donations. Its fundraising goal for 2009 is $36,000 to complete the fencing, adding scoreboard, dugouts, etc.
Blamey stated, “The Foundation is very excited announce to a great line-up of prizes for this year's Raffle. The top prize is 4 Loge Box Seats to the Boston Red Sox - Kansas City Royals game on Sunday, July 12, 2009.

"The Red Sox have also donated a prize to the raffle again this year," Blamey said. "This year's Sox’s prize is an authenticated autographed photo of 2008 MVP Dustin Pedroia. The Team has supported our raffle for six years, and their gifts have helped our raffles raise over $10,000 for the Waldoboro Recreation Complex.”
