On Thursday February 6, Jeff Devroy (Howard-Suamico Optimist Club President) and Bob Chambers (Howard-Suamico Optimist Community Foundation Chair) presented a check to the St Judes Children’s Research Hospital at the Bay Park Square Mall Annual Y100 St Jude Telethon.
They ran a live radio announcement promoting our Club and asking for call ins to match up to the $1,000.00 that we had donated. There was a 5 minute call in period where we raised an additional $2,400.00 bringing the total donation to $3,400.00. This was over $1,000.00 more than we had raised last year at the same Event. This was our 3rd year of giving and our hope is to continue with this Event with Foundation monies we raise annually.
