Boone-based Fareway Stores Inc. on Tuesday presented a $250,000 donation to the DMACC Foundation to be used for the new DMACC Boone Campus Student Activity Center. Fareway will be the exclusive sponsor of the new gym and multipurpose area within the Boone Campus Student Activity Center, which will be named Fareway Fieldhouse. “We are proud to partner with DMACC on their Boone Campus Student Activity Center,” Fareway President and CEO Reynolds Cramer said in a news release. “Not only will the Center help add to the high quality experience available at the DMACC Boone campus, it is a public-private commitment to support the overall well-being of the Boone community.” The $6.5 million project will add about 28,500 square feet of space to the existing gym. Fareway Fieldhouse will include two basketball/volleyball courts, as well as three baseball/softball batting cages that will drop down from the fieldhouse ceiling. The new student activity center also includes a state-of-the-art weight room designed by Powerlift, a contemporary sports medicine lab, an indoor golf performance center, storage space, offices and a family room. The project, designed by DLR Architects and being built by Baxter Construction, is on schedule to be completed by September. Fareway and DMACC are also working out the details to hold a Fareway night each fall or spring in the new facility for Fareway employees to attend an athletic event.
