CMN fundraisers a success

On behalf of the Eureka Greater Area Kiwanis Club, the Washington Kiwanis Club, the Eureka High School Key Club and the Eureka College Circle K Club, I would like to thank the individuals and businesses that contributed to our fundraisers for the Children’s Miracle Network.  

Thank you to all the businesses that let us set out donation canisters during the month of April at their businesses.

A special thank you goes out to the Washington Wal*Mart and the Eureka IGA who let us collect at their locations.

Thank you to all the individuals who so generously donated and to Washington South Side Bank and Eureka Sam Leman Chevrolet for their donations.  

Through everyone’s generosity we were able to donate at the telethon $2,861.65.  This helped the telethon raise $3.5 million for the Children’s Hospital.   

My most rewarding time was when a gentleman had his wife donate a dollar bill.  He started to walk away but turned around and came back and donated $100 saying he needed to do what the Lord told him to do.  

God bless him and all who donated. You are all HERO’S to the children at Children’s Hospital of Illinois.
