Elks Donation

We attended family steak night at the Elks on Friday night to receive a very gracious donation for the Foundation. The club received money from a Gratitude Grant to pass along to a worthy cause and the Foundation was selected this year to receive the $500 donation. Russ Wiederholt made the presentation and brought tears to my eyes in doing it. As he was explaining the donation, he made an announcement that an anonymous donor there that evening wanted to match the donation, making the total given to the Foundation $1000. We were touched by this surprise act of kindness along with the fact that the Elks chose the Foundation to donate to.
