The 100 Women Who Care donated over $20,000 to to art spaces Thursday morning.
   
That money will go towards helping pay for a sculpture honoring Paul Dresser.
   
The Terre Haute native who wrote Indiana's state song "On The Banks Of The Wabash."
   
The statue will be placed by dresser home now located in Fairbanks park.
   
And officials hope that everyone can come and enjoy the art work and learn more about his impact on the area.

"It creates a destination site. It will enhance what his house here is all about in the history of Terre Haute, so it creates a lot of city pride," said Mary Kramer of Art Spaces.

Officials say Thursday's donation puts them about three-fifths of the way towards reaching their goal.
   
They hope to have the statue completed by June of 2014.
