Posted on September 18, 2017UPDATE: (Sept 2017) - There has now been added photos to this fundraiser page of the proposed Christopher F. Stewart Memorial Media Box! We have surpassed our personal goal of raising $100,000 plus we now have the support of a NYS grant which puts us in a position to place the order.
HUGE thanks to all of you for helping us, it has been three years of hard work to get this far.
The Media Box will be expensive, even more than we currently have in contributions so this page will remain open. We appreciate every donation our family, friends and the community has made and are not asking for more - the only thing we could still use a bit of help with is securing corporate donations. If you work for a large or small company or have a relationship with anyone who does, we'd appreciate it you mentioned our cause. It would be a tax writeoff for them and a true help to us.
You wouldn't think a Media Box could be so pricy but there's a lot involved when it's on school grounds and has to go thru the NYS planning board. We had no idea of the true expense when we began fundraising and thought we'd be done well before now. When all is said and done however, we want it to be everything we could possibly do to make it spectacular for Chris, Shenendehowa CSD and all the students and visitors who see and use it for future years.
Thank you again - and by this time next year you'll be receiving your invitation to be on hand for the ribbon cutting!

Posted on January 21, 2015An amazing $25,000 donation from Mohawk Honda moves the needle to almost $72,000!
When we reach the $100,000 mark the design will be solidified on paper and the blueprints will be send to the state planning board for approval.
We hope you'll share our story and this fundraiser link so we can make this a reality ASAP and a wonderful memorial for Chris to be used and seen for many years to come by an endless number of students and spectators.
Our thanks, appreciation and gratitude to everyone supporting our efforts. We are headed in the right direction.
