Albany- Albany State University is still about $3.5 million shy of having enough money to complete the football stadium.

 Friday, "Friends of ASU" held a fundraising dinner and dance at the Civic Center. Supporters have been trying to raise money since the state legislature failed to approve the complete 10-million needed for the stadium.

ASU does still plan to have the first phase of the stadium finished in the fall.

"The first phase, which is the west side of the concourse for the stadium, will be completed by November and we plan to have our last home game on November 8 against Morehouse College in the new stadium," said Clifford Porter, executive director of the ASU Foundation.

The goal for tonight's event was to raise $25,000. They'll continue having fundraisers until they have enough money to complete the stadium.
