Help Blue Lick Optimist replace stolen 4 wheeler

My name is Laura Jeffries. I currently volunteer with Blue Lick as the board secretary/sponsor coordinator and coach as needed, both of my children play here. My husband coaches here and serves on the board as well. Our family spends a lot of our time at this facility.  Blue Lick is our home away from home. 

Blue Lick has served our area of Northern Bullitt county and Southern Jefferson county for over 40 years. We're completely run by a volunteer board and coaches. Our goal to teach the game of baseball and sportsmanship.

Our organization depends on donor support, fundraising, and enrollment fees to operate. 

Unfortunately, we've experienced vandalism and theft at our park. 

We've had a pitching machine, an entire set of metal bleachers stolen, and most recently, our 4 wheeler.  All of these items have been stolen with the past year.

The most recent event has left us without our 4 wheeler which we completely depend on for field maintenance. Our concession stand was vandalized and our volunteers have to make repairs. The thieves were also kind enough to open our freezers and refrigerators to let all of our food spoil.  They also destroyed our equipment cage door, stole baseballs and literally stole candy from kids. 

We're asking for help with costs associated with repairs to the concession stand and replacing the 4 wheeler. We're hoping maybe we can replace the bleachers that managed to wander off too.

Orginal story from Facebook:

Very sad to report that our park was broken in to in last couple nights. Not exactly sure when, but some time since Tuesday night, July 2nd, 2019. Our four wheeler that we use to maintain all of our fields was stolen, along with a few dozen baseballs, some food from concession, and other items. If anybody has any info, let us or LMPD know. Thanks for any help!
