They are 175-thousand dollars short of their goal to complete Melaina’s Magical Play Land in Cape County Park North. Spearheaded by the parents of the late Melaina Cunningham, Jeff and Andrea, this handicap accessible project is underway but still not fully funded. Andrea tells KZIM KSIM when Melaina was with us she couldn’t use regular playgrounds because of her wheelchair and in her honor – they seek a solution… to build a play land for kids of all abilities without barriers they continually face. The 2nd annual benefit golf tournament is being held August 10th at Kimbeland Country Club in Jackson. The 4 person scramble has a noon luncheon and a 1-o-clock shotgun start for teams of 4. Sponsorships are still available and registration forms are available at www-dot-magical-play-land-dot-org under the events section.
