The National Football League and EA SPORTS, the world’s leading interactive sports entertainment software company, donated $50,000 to the Legacy Park Project, teaming with the City of Malibu for a healthier environment. Showcasing the depth of support for this important project, more than $7 million in direct contributions and pledges have been raised to date from private sponsors. Legacy Park, the centerpiece of the City of Malibu’s more than $50 million dollar commitment to clean water, is one of California’s most innovative stormwater and urban run-off projects. It will transform 17 acres in the heart of Malibu into a central park that will serve as an environmental cleaning machine, capturing, cleaning, and disinfecting up to 2.6 million gallons of stormwater and urban runoff that flow from the surrounding watershed. The park’s state-of-the-art design will reduce pollution and improve water quality in Malibu Creek, Malibu Lagoon and the world-famous Surfrider Beach.Pictured above (l-r) Roger Craig; City Manager Jim Thorsen; Councilmember John Sibert; Mayor Andy Stern; Councilmember Pamela Conley Ulich; NFL Vice President Entertainment Marketing and Promotions Tracy Perlman; EA Sports Director of Marketing Nathan Stewart; Donnie Edwards
