Thanks to Bill Matthews and Ralph Zack for matching all contributions. Players donated just over $1,000 which Ralph and Bill matched. Tuesday Scott and Sweet Pea made a very nice presentation. Great organization that does great work.
Thanks to Jill Foster for sponsoring this event. $385 was collected. Nice.
The Visitation Rooms
Most children in the state system have court ordered supervised family visits. These visits are hard for both the children and the parents. The visitation rooms at the agency locations are where they meet. Toys, games and activities help relieve the stress and awkwardness of these visits. Your contributions greatly help in this time of budget cuts.
Money gives the case-workers an opportunity to buy popular items that have worn out and keep toys, books and games current.
FOOD FOR LANE COUNTY
How fun is this. We just get to keep updating this one. Additional donations have brought the grand total to well over $3,000. Wow is the word that seems to keep slipping out. Just wow!!!
Just an amazing amount of money….over $2,372 to-date was raised. In addition, 1,345lbs of food was donated. And a little bonus. Jeff, partnering with Paul, had a very nice 71+% game for first overall. Here are a few photos.
FIRST PLACE FAMILY SHELTER
Thanks to Susie Piper for sponsoring this group. St. Vinnies does great work in this community. Susie indicated that what would be very helpful for this organization would be donations of personal hygiene items such as disposable razors, shampoo, soaps, feminine hygiene products, hand lotion, skin care products and like items. Bring to the club and Susie will see that they arrive at the proper destination.
Thanks to Leigh Wells for sponsoring. Lots of clothing contributed. The dollar amount donated was almost $700. Again, great job for a very worthwhile organization.
EPD Kid Safety Town
Debbie Janacek did a presentation for EPD. Betsy Ovitt was the sponsor. Nice to raise awareness about this program. Close to $300 was raised.
What a nice presentation by Robben Lyons from CASA. Per Ed’s accounting, exactly $700 was donated. Outstanding! Thanks to all for the contributions and special “Thanks” to Ed, Connie W (The Tall One) and Lee S for sponsoring. A great organization doing some much needed work.
Photos below represent at least three years of charity games and are certainly not all inclusive. We may get them sorted out one of these days.
