Construction work continues on First Dakota Soccer Park

The Yankton Youth Soccer Association (YYSA) is being inundated by a typhoon of donations this month as it approaches its greater fundraising goal for completion of the First Dakota Soccer Park.

Sondra Jensen of YYSA told the Press & Dakotan that its “June Typhoon” fundraising event is part of the association’s greater goals.

“The soccer complex is a $2.5 million project and in June, we’re hoping to push over that next threshold,” she said.

An anonymous donor offered a $25,000 match for money raised in the first two weeks of the fundraising push.

“As of (Wednesday), we’ve blown past that,” Jensen said. We’re well past that $25,000 match. On Friday we’ll be announcing another donor has come forth with a $25,000 match for the second half of the month.”
