GROSSE POINTE WOODS, Mich. (AP) - A suburban Detroit private school is kicking off the public portion of a $50 million fundraising campaign that’s already more than halfway to its goal.

University Liggett School holds an event Saturday for the Sure Foundations campaign at the school’s new athletic fields at its Grosse Pointe Woods campus. The effort seeks to improve academics and facilities as well as build the school’s endowment.

During the event, Liggett will honor longtime coach Muriel E. Brock by naming the girls’ lacrosse and field hockey field in her honor.

So far, Liggett says the campaign has raised more than $26 million. Improvements already made because of donations include the new artificial turf athletic fields. The campaign also supports projects including the John A. and Marlene L. Boll Campus Center.
