The volunteer group raising money for artificial turf at Vernon Hills High School's football stadium is nearing the goal line. The Project Turf organization had raised nearly $577,000 since it was founded about a year ago, according to information at vhhscougars.org. That's about 72 percent of the group's $800,000 goal.
