December 2021 Fundraiser
We are very excited about our recent fundraiser that was held on Friday November 12th. We sold out of tickets and served 130 meals that evening.
We’d like to thank Bob and Cindy Peabody who did an amazing job on the BBQ ribs! They were definitely award winning ribs. Thank you to Steve Masterton, PER and Phil Lawson for all of their hard work in the kitchen and with the side dishes. Dessert was compliments of Anne-Marie Wendel. Raffle baskets were a big hit. We need to thank Anne-Marie Wendel and her friend Margaret Carter who went above and beyond and donated 12 raffle baskets. Sandy Fuschetti, Cathy Swann and Alice Murray also need to be thanked for their basket donations. Penny Deig and Hank Cobb took charge of the 50/50, and you couldn’t miss them in their festive hats with flashing lights.
Due to generous donations from our members and event volunteers, we had numerous silent auction items. A special thank you and shout out to Vicki Wolf for taking the lead with the auction. Her dedication, drive and determination was behind raising the most funds possible. We also want to thank all volunteers that helped with this event. There are too many to list, but you know who you are. We have the best team ever and this was all made possible by everyone working together.
We are extremely excited to announce that for this event weekend, the total of auction items, raffles, 50/50, member donations, corporate donations and additional donations we have raised $22,117.00. This has been our largest amount raised for veterans in lodge history. This could not have happened without the support of everyone involved, all volunteers and of course, our wonderful lodge members!
We are now able to continue our work as Elks and assist veterans. Thank you to everyone at 1291 for all of your support, assistance and generosity.
