    The Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center is a 41,000 square foot facility with 1200-seat gymnasium, situated on a 37-acre site.  The facility fulfills the largely unmet need for recreation and sports venues in East St. Louis and the surrounding area.  The Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center annually hosts hundreds of events for young athletes and serves as a prominent regional baseball, football and basketball venue.  In 2003 the facility was the site of the National Khoury League Championship Series. 

    Many opportunities exist for supporting the maintenance and development of this facility.  Due to the large number of events held at the Center, parking areas goal to be repaved and additional parking should be added.  The outdoor playing fields require fencing, lighting, and additional seating.  Expanded concession and storage facilities would allow us to better serve the athletes and fans that visit the Center every weekend during football and basketball seasons.  Annual maintenance costs for these heavily used facilities drain Foundation resources.  The goal for our Capital Campaign Dollars, which we have appropriated titled, 101 JJK Circle of Champions, is $1,010,000.
