Zach Ward, who runs DSI Comedy Theater in Carrboro, has issued a challenge grant of $4,200 on behalf of his business to give a boost to fundraising to begin installation of an 18-hold disc golf course at Anderson Park.
Ward challenges the community to donate $4,200 to the Carrboro Parks Project by Oct. 1 for the course, and he will match that amount on behalf of DSI Comedy Theater. Any funds raised over the $4,200 challenge would be put towards the completion of the course.
The Carrboro Parks Project is a nonprofit organization with the mission to improve the quality of life in Carrboro through the protection and improvement of parks and recreational facilities, including greenways and green space.
