  • OLYMPIC PARK FUNDRAISING BEGINS

         The Atlanta Chamber of Commerce began its campaign to raise
    $10 million from local businesses for the $50 million Centennial
    Olympic Park.  The Chamber has already received about $6 million
    in cash commitments from 15 companies, and Chamber President
    Gerald Bartels hopes to bring in even more than $10 million.
    Bartels: "This is the opportunity for companies who have been
    waiting to be asked to make a commitment but not at the level of
    major sponsorship."  Dan Graveline, a leader of the park effort,
    said they have begun land acquisition which will cost about $31M,
    and F. Duane Ackermon, President of BellSouth Telecommunications
    and another leader of the park campaign, "hopes to bank all
    contributions by January to prevent a cash flow crunch" (Melissa
    Turner, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 11/9).
