PERRYSBURG, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The Perrysburg Heights Community Center has been the center of
controversy lately. The cash-stripped center almost had to cancel the
Mexican-American Festival, its biggest fundraiser of the year, but it was saved
just in time.
After almost 20 years, the South of the Border Festival will continue,
this time with its original name: The Mexican-American Festival.
The festival almost didn't happen after rumors were spread that it was
canceled, when it never was.
"We weren't going to let it go," said Festival Coordinator Jason Craig.
Tickets are now being sorted for this weekend's free family festival.
More than 1,000 people are expected to fill the parking lot for dancing and
games. Money generated from the festival goes toward local non-profits and to
help the community center continue to provide tutoring for children.
"It gives kids a chance, let them know there's something more to life
than just this neighborhood and just the opportunities they provide," Craig
said. "There is a whole world of opportunity for them to explore."
Board members were recently faced with how to stretch a $20,000 budget
for the rest of the year. Now things are looking up. They have received 30
in-kind donations and sponsorships for the festival.
"There's no excuse not to sacrifice a little bit to make everything
around you better," Craig said.
