Sanibel Captiva Community Bank donated the final $275,000 needed by Fort Myers High School to replace the natural grass on Sam Sirianni Field at Edison Stadium with synthetic turf and a new, rubberized track.
The $1 million project can now proceed following matching donations of $250,000 pledged by the Miami Dolphins and Dr. and Mrs. John Kagan of Fort Myers. Additional funds were donated by the community.
Fort Myers High will award the bank with exclusive corporate sponsorship of the stadium, which was named for the late inventor Thomas Edison and the field, which was named for the late Sam Sirianni Sr., who coached football at Fort Myers for 33 seasons.
