Elks Lodge #625 has once again contributed the proceeds from its fall dinner to Cancer Support for Blackford County. The donation of $3,395 came from the Elks’ first ever drive thru dinner fundraiser, which served 144 meals on Saturday, November 14.
The Elks have been fundraising for Cancer Support, making a large contribution each fall, since 2008.
The Cancer Support group consists of local volunteers. The group has been visiting Blackford County cancer patients and dropping off a generous gift bag that includes gas and restaurant gift cards along with other items that help make cancer treatment sessions a bit less stressful for patients. The group has worked with the Foundation since 2007. In a typical year, 45-50 patients receive the totes.
