Sage Hill School's Ramer Field is getting a makeover, thanks to Gary and Lisa Jabara and their family.
The Jabara family has donated more than $1 million to renovate Ramer Field, including new artificial turf and a new running track, which will benefit the football, boys' and girls' soccer, lacrosse and track and field programs.
"Sage Hill School offers a world-class educational experience that enriches the lives of all Sage Hill students," Lisa Jabara said in a press release. "My family and I saw an opportunity to make a donation to be used to improve the quality of Ramer Field so all the facilities at Sage Hill reflect the school's commitment to helping students fulfill their personal passion in academics, athletics and the arts. We're thrilled that this new field will benefit so many members of our community."
"We felt it was important to make a donation that would cover all the costs of the renovation and not add any additional financial burden to Sage Hill," Gary said in a press release.
A groundbreaking ceremony is planned at Ramer Field on Monday at 3 p.m.
Sage Hill expects the new athletic field and track to be completed by Aug. 3, before the start of the 2012 school year.
