EDMOND, Okla.—A large donation is helping one university move forward with its plans to build a boathouse on the Oklahoma River.

MidFirst Bank recently donated $2.5 million to the University of Central Oklahoma Foundation for the CHK/Central Boathouse.

The boathouse will be the home of the Central women’s rowing team and will also include a live music venue, outdoor performance area and an art gallery.

The gift completes the university’s fundraising initiative for the project.

No word on when construction on the boathouse will begin.
