Organizers have raised nearly 80 percent of the $425,000 goal for the Butterfly Athletic Park at Wales Primary School.

The facility, which will pay tribute to Katie Durkin, will include a U10 soccer field, three-lane running track, basketball court and a new playground with a design for youth with special needs.

The Butterfly Foundation is raffling a recreational vehicle to help raise the remaining funds. Tickets are available at two East Aurora locations: Aurora Outfitters, 594 Main St., and Bar Bill Tavern, 185 Main St.; Buffalo RV, 1200 Southwestern Blvd., West Seneca; Fit Stop, 3631 Main St., Strykersville; Made in America Store, 900 Maple Road, Elma, and Marilla Country Store, 1673 Two Rod Road.

A Winterfest Dance with a Valentine’s Day theme will return to the Newell-Faulkner American Legion Post 880 in the Town of Eden. 

Brett Alan and The Hitmen will perform music for the dance from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday in the post at 2912 Legion Drive.  

For those who would like to be photographed in a romantic setting, a photographer will be available.  

Admission is $10 per person. Beer, wine, soft drinks and other refreshments will be served. 

The post will also offer dinners for singles and couples in the dining room. Couples will pay $50 for prime rib, $70 for a surf-and-turf meal of lobster tails and prime rib or $45 for a heart-shaped butterflied 20-ounce strip loin. Dinners include the admission price. 

Reservations for dinners are required and can be made by calling the post at 992-3304 today or Monday. Table reservations for the dance can be scheduled by calling Ken Szal at 498-0560.
