RHINELANDER - A donation to the Hodag Little League will be a big hit with those who want some snacks while at Hodag Park.

Culver's owner Jen Clark says they were inspired by how much her sons love baseball and wanted to support the future of the program.

"We hope that they see us as a community partner because we do like to give back," Clark said.They come in all the time to support us. We work hard for them so we want to make sure that we give back to them. We support all of things that are going to make Rhinelander grow and move in the right direction."

The Culver's donation is one of many from people around Rhinelander.

Each contribution has gone towards construction of the new stand.

Little League President Brad Kowieski says it's so exciting to see how much support the league has seen.

"I think this is just an invest of keeping the tradition going," Kowieski said. It just makes me proud as an alum from Rhinelander, a native born Rhinelandarian I just feel fantastic that my kids are going to benefit from it and the people around these kids, it's very heartwarming."

The concession stand sold brats and burgers for the first time during on the Fourth of July.

The Rhinelander Lions Club also donated another $1,500 this week.

Siding on the concession stand started going up this week.
