TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -  Brandi Fenton Memorial Park's large dog park will benefit from one family's fundraiser.  

The family of Austin Fitzgerald is hosting a fundraiser on Saturday, August 23 to honor their son, who died in 2013 from acute lung failure.  According to Austin's family he was a dog lover, who had one day hoped to rescue Huskies and place them in good homes.  In memory of their son, the family has decided 'to provide a place where all can come to love and enjoy something that was very dear to Austin's heart.'  The family has created a website to help raise funds, to check it out go to www.fitzgeraldfoundation.com.  

Funds raised during this event and via the website will be used to revitalize the large dog park by adding an obstacle course and a bigger turf area for the dogs to playing.  To see plans for the new park click here
