Dion Pride, son of country singer Charlie Pride, will share his talents at the Valentine’s Day Sweetheart Supper in Woodward on Feb. 14.  The event will be held at the Faith United Methodist Church, 1402 Texas. The event is a fundraiser to raise money for the purchase of new playground equipment to be installed at the future Centennial Park Handicap Playground.

“The Sweetheart Supper menu includes chicken fried steak or grilled chicken, baked potato, green beans, salad bar, dessert, and drinks. The price is $30 per person,” said Woodward Main Street Director Janet Fitz. “The proceeds will go toward the balance due on the handicap playground equipment for Centennial Park.”

This Valentine’s Day Sweetheart Supper will have two times available, 5:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. or 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Pride will perform his music during both times. Dinner reservations must be made ahead of time by calling (580) 254-8521.

In the past year, Main Street held approximately 10 different fundraisers for the playground project. The fundraisers and community donations have raised $66,000.

That leaves $84,000 more to be raised before Main Street is able to purchase the $150,000 worth of equipment for the playground. There will be individual climbing toys, slides, and toys specifically designed for children with a variety of disabilities, plus groups of climbing toys under canopies for shade.

“Children of all ages, children with no disabilities, and children with disabilities will enjoy this park for years to come. With your help and donations, we can make dreams come true for all children now and in the future for a safe place to play in Downtown Woodward,” according to Main Street’s brochure on project.
