Fund growing for Pioneer Woman statue cleaning

Ponca City Now - December 2, 2015 9:20 am

The Friends of the Pioneer Woman Statue and Museum have launched a fundraising effort to cover the cost to clean and maintain the statue.

The group is trying to raise $5,000 during the five weeks of December by selling rubber ducks at $25 each.

Cleaning and preserving a work of art such as the iconic Pioneer Woman Statue is no easy task, Pioneer Statue and Museum director Robbin Davis said.

"It is a professional job and requires skill as well as patience. The last time the statue was cleaned was approximately six years ago and cost nearly $4,000."

The museum is asking the community to help support the current effort to clean and wax the statue. The campaign raised more than $1,800 in its first day on Tuesday.
