Riverside Court Thank You

The goal of this is simple: Let's reimburse Patrick and Ben for the supplies and hours they spent completely making over the Riverside Park basketball court

I think it'd be great if they could at least recoup the money they spent on paint and tools (they estimated they spent about $500 of their own money). If we end up raising more than that, they said they can use extra funds for repairs down the line. I also happen to believe that if there's a little left over for a burger and a beer, well, they earned it.

All money raised will go directly to them. They mentioned wanting to do this type of work elsewhere in the community, so maybe this could also help them launch those efforts. 

Let's do this, Sobo. It's gonna feel great. I promise. 

***Here's the original text of my Facebook post in SBNA.***
I noticed last week that someone had begun making serious improvements to the basketball court at Riverside Park. On my way home tonight, I saw a couple guys out there rolling paint, so I stopped to thank them and get their story. It’s a simple one: they live in the neighborhood, and they wanted to make the court look nice, and they used their own money and supplies. I didn’t get their last names, and I don’t know if they’re on Facebook, but here are Patrick (in the “B” hat) and Ben, and man did they do great work. New paint on all the lines, sweet designs in the lanes and at half court, and great artwork on the backboards (plus much-needed new nets). How great is this? Thanks, fellas.
