Iowa Powerball Winners Donate $3 Million to Fund Son’s School Stadium
An Iowa couple won a $202 million Powerball jackpot in September. Now they're donating $3 million to their son's high school for a new football stadium. However, that gift comes with a catch. They don't want the stadium to be named after them. Instead, they want the visiting team's locker room painted pink!The Bondurant-Farrar school district in Iowa accepted the $3 million donation from Brian and Mary Lohse on Monday, according to the The Des Moines Register.
And they have one more request--other than the pink locker rooms. They are requesting the new stadium be completed before the fall 2014 football season which is their oldest son's senior year.
The pink locker room is inspired by the University of Iowa visitor's locker room at Kinnick Stadium which is also painted pink.
