The McPherson Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is now accepting applications for its 2014 sports tournament grant program.
"We try to encourage tournament organizers to host their event in McPherson by offering up to $750 in matching grant funds for either officials' salaries or field rentals,” CVB director Anne Hassler said. “We just awarded grants for January tournaments to the McPherson Optimist Club, McPherson High School and the Light Capital Kiwanis Club.”
The CVB awarded $6,300 to tournament organizers in 2013.
Anyone interested in applying for a grant can find applications on the CVB website, visitmcpherson.com, or contact Hassler with questions at [email protected] or (620) 241-3340. Applications need to be turned in 90 days in advance of the tournament but will be accepted past that date with an automatic 20 percent deduction.
