Elks Fundraise for Cerebral Palsy

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 4/5/24 | 4/5/24

ILION, NY – Elks members from Cobleskill, Esperance, Amsterdam, Scotia-Glenville, Clifton  Park, Little Falls, Ilion, and Herkimer Lodges came together earlier this month to participate in a  cornhole tournament to raise funds for charity. Combined with a 50/50 raffle and basket raffle  items, the District raised over $1800 to support the New York State Elks Association’s statewide  Major Project. 

Joining the Elks for the tournament at Ilion Lodge were NYS Major Projects Ambassador  Charles Dieteman and his mother and grandmother; Past NYS Elks Association President and  CEO of the State Major Projects Board James and Yvonne Peace; and David Brown, Chairman  of the New York State Major Project Committee and his wife State Trustee Vicki. Also in attendance were Mohawk Valley District Sponsors Cameron Ricci (and wife JoAnne) and  Michael Bloss, both Past Presidents of the NYS Elks Association. 

"The New York State Elks Association supplies the Cerebral Palsy Association of New York’s Home Service Program with their salaries," said Brown. "We also help purchase 3 vehicles  every year for the Home Service Program so they can transport people back and forth to either  their doctor’s appointments, or whatever needs to be done.” 

Combined with other fundraising done throughout the Elks year, over $30,000 will be donated  by the nine Lodges in the Mohawk Valley District to the State Major Project, far surpassing the  goal of $8.00 per member in financial support.
