Since 2006, the Knights of Columbus have donated over $225,000.00 to the league. Included in that figure is $60,000.00 which was raised as a Special Olympics Initiative to help build a field for their Senior League. Contributing to this initiative were 42 Councils from Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb Counties.
 
In attendance from the Michigan State Council were State Community Director John Hundiak, State Special Olympics Director Robbie Waclawski, joined by Grand Knight Bob Szymanski Council 13950 St Mary's of the Hills in Rochester Hills, MI.
 
The Blessing and Naming of the field is tentatively scheduled for the Saturday of Father's Day Weekend (June 15, 2024) weather permitting.
