ENF UPDATE - November 2018
Hi All, Our annual fundraiser for Elks National Foundation was a huge success. Everyone had a fun evening. Our Hawaiian entertainment, Melinda Falaniko and her family were great; Melinda also cooked the Kalua Pork as well as the Hawaiian dessert, which likewise was great. Of course Kevin Auernig, our one-man band never fails to please. Thank you to the kitchen crew, servers, ENF committee, prize donors, LOE and ticket assistants for all your help. I wish I could thank each person individually.
Nora Chetterbock was the winner of our purple pig weigh-in and won two hand-made wall lanterns donated by Linda Vanhoek. We have made $1,096.00 from our fat little purple pigs, with more pigs still being turned in. As you can see, just saving your loose change can do so much.
We also had $370.00 donated that evening. The $370.00 has been forwarded to ENF in Chicago. The piggy money was deposited in the bank and the donors’ names, and amounts donated, were turned in to the office for processing. I will have the final figures in next month’s newsletter.
As of October 4, which is the most current print out; Dixie Elks Lodge is at $8.82 per capita, which comes out to $9,431.00. Awesome, Awesome, Awesome. Way to go Lodge.
