MANKATO — The CityArt Walking Sculpture Tour committee announced Friday, Feb. 22, the

success of its recent fundraising campaign to purchase "Going for the Goal" from its 2012 tour.

The committee raised more than $20,000 this month to purchase the bronze sculpture for permanent installation in front of the Verizon Wireless

Civic Center.

 The sculpture has been on exhibit in front of the civic center since May.

Business, community members and hockey fans donated through a variety of opportunities including cash contributions and a special Chuck-A-Puck at the Maverick hockey game against the Minnesota Gophers in late January.
