Neighborhood Parks Get $5,000 Grants To Repair Basketball Courts

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Two Sacramento neighborhood parks will receive grants totaling $10,000 to fix up their basketball courts.

Sprite and Raley’s have teamed up to award Fair Oaks and McKinley Parks $5,000 each to fix up their well-worn courts, according to company spokespersons.

The winners were announced Tuesday after more than 2,600 votes were cast in the Sprite Sparks Parks program in Northern California and Nevada.

“We’re proud to partner with Coca-Cola’s Sprite brand on this exciting effort and we look forward to seeing these basketball courts revitalized to improve the health and vitality of these local parks.” said Jennie Teel-Wolter, Raley’s Community Relations Manager.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held once the upgrades are complete.
