Pulaski indoor pool user donates $5,000 to keep pool open
MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A donation of $5,000 from a Pulaski indoor pool user named Ruth will be matched by Brown Deer philanthropist Stan Kass, making it a $10,000 donation.
Kaas previously donated $100,000 and agreed to match any additional donations to help keep both indoor pools open.
The private contributions will help offset the maintenance and operating costs of Milwaukee County’s two indoor pools at Pulaski and Noyes parks.
Kass is making his donations in memory of his late wife, Lee, who was a frequent swimmer at the Noyes pool. Kass said he also will consider future matching donations if the community continues to show financial support — and he has agreed to match Ruth’s donation.
