To the EDN:
I would like to take a moment to thank Brad Leonard, ELC Girls Basketball Coach and Troy Larson, ILCC Mens Basketball Coach. These coaches came up with a great idea to join forces and provide a night filled with basketball and showcase their programs.
They asked Woody's Charities to do the tailgate supper and it was a great success.
We served over 300 people. The Iowa Lakes food service staff were tremendous in helping to set up and serve and provide some of the bars and the drinks. The ELC Basketball Parents pitched in and took care of the tickets sales and collected money at the door in addition to providing bars to go with the meal. With the help of all those involved we were able to raise over $1500. Since we are not affiliated with a national charity this money will go directly to a local resident when they need it most. All our funds go directly to the recipients we assist. We couldn't do this without the help of other great people in our community and the support of those who attend these events.
Please look forward to attended our annual Charity Dinner and Dance at the Elk's Club on Feb. 5 and the Charity Auction at Woody's Pizza on April 2.
