  1. LaOtto Community Park Incorporated at 500S Tamarack Laotto, IN is a 509A2 under the umbrella of 501c3. It was established in 1955 in an unincorporated town thus causing it to rely on donations, fund raisers, and grants. We, the committee have struggled the last two years in paying off our outstanding bills from poor passed management. We are enraged with the Huntertown Lions baseball program and struggle with a lawn mower that needs replaced, picnic tables and additional shed or concession builting. We would be very appreciative of winning this Penny Pitch campaign. We want to continue to be a service to our local area.
