LAKE CHARLES – Pressure-washing work continues on Cowboy Stadium and is expected to be concluded within two weeks.
Work began last week by Like New Exteriors, LLC to thoroughly clean the inside and underside of Cowboy Stadium by using sodium hypochlorite (12.6% bleach) with an additive that helps penetrate the concrete. A pressure hose is followed to rinse the concrete.
The cost of the work is just under $50,000 and is being paid for by funds generated from the McNeese season ticket "Traditions Fund."
"I am proud to say that the stadium will be cleaned with money collected from the 'Traditions Fund'," said athletic director Tommy McClelland. "Every season ticket holder will benefit from this
facility improvement. With the completion of the field house last season, the field turf added four years ago and now the cleaning of the stadium, we can honestly say that we have one of the nicest football venues in the entire country.
"All of these improvements are directly related to our fans and the money they give to support McNeese athletics."
The "Traditions Fund" entitles every season ticket holder to make a tax-deductible donation. Season ticket holders with seats between the 40-yard lines make a $75 donation while seats outside the 40-yard lines make a $50 donation. Those with premium or luxury seating requires anywhere from $250-$1,000 donation. All donations are per account, not seat.
The funds allow the McNeese athletic department to use be used in a very strategic and effective way.
The Mobile, Alabama company that is owned by Richard LaCoste, is well known for its many other projects including the cleaning of Cajun Field at Louisiana-Lafayette, Turpin Stadium at Northwestern State, various campus buildings at both of those institutions, Ole Miss and Louisiana-Monroe as well as specializing in the restoration of buildings.
