Cafaro Foundation donates $17,000 to keep Bazetta park open


BAZETTA — The Cafaro Foundation announced it has donated $17,000 to keep Bazetta Township Park open this year.

The park board had been facing the possibility of closing the park after July 4 due to a lack of funding to maintain the grounds.

“We did not want to see the community suffer,” foundation Trustee William A. Cafaro said in a statement. “That park provides so many wonderful activities for families, from the baseball fields to the picnic pavilions, volleyball court, walking trail and the Imagination Station play area.”

The Cafaro Foundation is a charitable organization established by the Cafaro family in memory of William M. Cafaro, the founder of the Cafaro real-estate development and management company headquartered in Niles.
