Moorestown Historical Society trustee Lenny Wagner said he and district athletic director Neil Rosa have been collaborating on the legends display—inspired by a similar exhibit at the Smith-Cadbury Mansion a few years ago—seeking sponsorships from local businesses and have received a few contributions.
"So we're a little closer," Wagner said. "The Dave Robinson (bust) will really sort of help our cause. It calls attention to the fact we do have people in the town like this ... It's pretty remarkable."
Gray said there has been a "groundswell" of support for the Robinson bust, which should hopefully propel the group to its goal of raising the necessary funds in time for the Moorestown High School football home opener on Sept. 12—which Robinson is expected to attend.
