NEW YORK (WFAN) — Rachel Robinson is hopeful that a museum honoring her late husband’s legacy will open for business in 2015.
The 92-year-old told WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show on Wednesday that the Jackie Robinson Museum is currently about $7 million short of its $24-million goal. She said fundraising has been reinvigorated under Joseph Plumeri, who was named campaign chairman in 2013.
“It takes a long time to put together an institution,” Robinson said. “And that’s what we’re doing. … I’m feeling quite confident that we’re going to get this done this year.”
