LOS ANGELES -- In response to the recent fire that destroyed more than 800 acres of Griffith Park, the largest public park in Los Angeles, Frank McCourt, owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, announced today a donation of $100,000 to begin the process of rebuilding the park and the spirits of local residents.

"As proud members of the Los Angeles community, we know how important Griffith Park is to area residents, the Los Angeles eco-system, the local economy, and civic pride," McCourt said. "As a gathering place for people from all walks of life, Griffith Park is part of the fabric of this community and from one civic asset to another, the Dodgers are proud to donate $100,000 as the first step toward restoring the park and all that it provides to the lives of Angelenos."

The Dodgers Dream Foundation and Dodger community outreach efforts touch hundreds of thousand of families throughout Southern California each year through a variety of programs in four key areas: Youth Sports and Recreation; Education and Literacy; Health and Health Care; and the Environment. The Dodgers support more than 3,500 organizations, donate more than 100,000 tickets to youth groups and place special emphasis on helping traditionally under-served communities.
