EUGENE, Ore -- The Eugene Civic Alliance continues to raise money to transform the old Civic Stadium into Civic Park and hopes the community gives generously this holiday season.

Construction crews said they are making steady progress getting the site ready. The Eugene Civic Alliance has raised over $24 million for phase one of the project, which includes the soccer field, parking lot and field house, which will hold four basketball courts.

Starting on Giving Tuesday, which comes after Black Friday, the Eugene Civic Alliance is kicking off their Give Play Campaign that will run to the end of the year.

During the campaign, people can donate to the Civic Alliance by shopping at a number of local businesses. On Giving Tuesday, people can donate to them on Facebook, and PayPal will match their donations up to $25,000.

Bev Smith with KIDSPORTS and the Eugene Civic Alliance said they have raised over 80 percent of phase one's fundraising goal.

"It's been a lot of investment by a lot of community members who believe in a vision we started four years ago and have followed us every step of the way," Smith said.

Phase one is expected to be completed by the middle of 2020. Organizers hope to expand Civic Park in the future with additions, including bleacher seating.
