The Boardman Boosters recently announced that Sweeney Chevy Buick GMC has pledged $42,000 toward the third and final phase of Spartan Stadium.

“The Sweeney Family has been a great supporter of our community again and again-- and this is the third time they’ve stepped up to support Spartan Stadium,” said Booster President Bruce Flyak. “With this latest donation, they have committed a total of more than $100,000 to the Stadium Project.”

“We are happiest when we see our business helping to build a stronger community,” said Alexa Sweeney Blackann. “The Valley has supported our family business for 98 years, and we are grateful for that. This gift is also a tribute to my great grandfather, Arthur Sweeney, and my grandfather, Robert Sweeney, who were proud Boardman graduates.”

Phase 3 includes boys and girls locker rooms with a total of 134 lockers, a formal front facade with donor wall, concessions with eating area, public restrooms and ticket booths. The new building is funded completely by community donations.

Fundraising is ongoing and you can help us get to the finish line.

“The locker campaign and brick campaign are still open. You can leave a legacy when you donate,” said Flyak,.
