Help get better lighting at the St. Cloud plaza

The St. Cloud skate plaza is 69.4 miles from Minneapolis, meaning it's definitely the best park within 70 miles of where Google maps locates the center of the city (likely the landing of the Undercover 5). The plaza was a good story of organizing and funding and all the work that actually makes these things happen; the dudes up I-94 are once again trying to make something happen, though on a smaller level -- they want better lights. You should too. There's a gofundme site set up for the cause. You can donate some cash there, if you're so compelled; they've got $1,300 of a $4,000 goal, 25 days in. Here's the argument for lights, from the site previously linked:
The St. Cloud Skate Plaza needs brighter lights! We have one of the best outdoor skateparks in Minnesota but skating at night can be a bit hard on the eyes and hard on the body making it a bit of a safety concern to some. The current lights are a dull yellow color and we are looking to upgrade to a brighter much more clear LED system. It will cost $4,000 to upgrade the 3 light poles and fixtures already installed at the park. Spring is already here and Summer is on the way, we hope to have this money raised as soon as possible for the warm nights ahead.

Any additional money raised that is above our needed goal will be donated to the St. Cloud Skate Plaza for some much needed maintenance.

Any and all money raised will be greatly appreciated by not only the locals of the St. Cloud Skate Plaza but by all the people who come from all over the state to ride at this outdoor skateboard park.
