"Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation set up this 503(c) Friends of Chapel Hill fund so that people could make a donation with a specific category for beach volleyball,” Scanga said, “so we got all of our friends that had anything to do with volleyball to donate. We raised around $20,000 to build these courts. We also got a few grants – from Strowd Roses, the Oaks Foundation, USA volleyball, and the Town of Chapel Hill contributed the actual poles for a couple thousand dollars. Parents donated the rest."
