The Sabine Pass Lighthouse’s Sponsor a Step program is still going strong. With 81 steps spoken for, there are now only 15 steps left to be sponsored.
Each step will have a plate with the donor’s name. Each step costs $1000, and is tax deductible. Payment may be made by sending a check to the Cameron Parish Preservation Alliance c/o Andrew Tingler at 115 Boudreaux Lane, Lake Charles LA 70607, or through Paypal at www.paypal.com/fundraise/charity/1983950. Tingler says a payment plan can be arranged.
The Alliance now has the permit for fixing the road which was damaged by Hurricanes Laura and Delta. Repairs are ongoing with no real timeline for for when visitors can drive to the lighthouse.
The step contractor will be coming to take an interior scan of the lighthouse over the next couple of months then onto design and creation of the steps.
