EDWARDSVILLE, ILL., March 5, 2014 . . . Continuing its ongoing commitment to give back to the community through philanthropic endeavors and donations, Gori Julian & Associates, Inc., P.C., today announced a donation of $200,000 in support of the Edwardsville District #7 Chuck Fruit Aquatic Center.
In December 2013, District #7 announced a donation of $4 million by an Edwardsville native to build an aquatic center with an Olympic-sized swimming pool. Named in memory of an Edwardsville High School graduate and long-time swimmer, the Chuck Fruit Aquatic Center will be located on the grounds of the District #7 Sports Complex. It will be built adjacent to the
Jon Davis Wrestling Center directly across from the Edwardsville High School on Center Grove Road in Edwardsville. The Chuck Fruit Aquatic Center will allow Edwardsville High School to have a more competitive swim program for its students.
The donation of $200,000 by Gori Julian & Associates will help supplement additional needed funds for the facility and falls in line with Gori Julian’s commitment to community service. “We are passionate about supporting local charities and our community through volunteer work,
initiating our own fundraising efforts and through cash donations. We felt it was important to help support this project because we wanted a way to help make District #7 schools even better for the children of our many employees and our clients whose kids attend school in Edwardsville. We also recognize that this project will allow our community to continue to thrive
as a great place to work, live and raise a family,” said Randy Gori of Gori Julian & Associates, Inc., P.C.
