Birchwood Field still in running for $100,000 grand prize
Kraft Celebration Tour
Charlottetown’s Birchwood Field will be getting a nice make over.
Just how nice the upgrade is, however, will be up to the voters.
Charlottetown has already made the Top 10 on the Kraft Celebration Tour, a national program that helps improve places to play.
The capital city is guaranteed $25,000 from Kraft Canada to improve Birchwood Field and will host a live broadcast of TSN’s SportsCentre on Aug. 21. Now if the community receives the most votes on July 21 and July 22, it will also receive $100,000 in total towards the community project.
Charlottetown will be using its winnings from the Kraft Celebration tour to upgrade Birchwood Field, a scrap yard-turned football field, with a scoreboard and on-site storage facilities for the Privateers Football Club.
The improvements are expected to help rejuvenate the minor football program and provide a proper home for the club.
Votes can be cast by visiting www.kraftcelebrationtour.ca on July 21 and 22.
The grand prize winner will be announced on TSN’s SportsCentre on Aug. 25.
