Donated winnings

To the Editor:

We would like to give a big “thank you” to the parents and friends who bought 50/50 raffle tickets at the Montini track meet on April 27. A special thank you to the person who won the 50/50 and donated the winnings back.

This extra amount gave us the opportunity to donate money to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, FISH food pantry, Christmas decorations for the residents of a local nursing home, blankets for wheelchair-bound seniors, and children in the hospitals.

We also donated money to the “Blue Star Banner” program. We are partnered with McHenry Township to honor families of deployed service personnel. The banner is to be hung in the window to show pride and support for loved ones serving in the military.

If you are interested in this program, forms can be found at www.mchenrytownship.com. You then check on the Blue Star Banner program and fill it out and return to the township.
