A BIG SHOUT OUT and Thank You to Holland 1916 for their 50/50 drawing resulting in a donation of $1,100. Another BIG SHOUT OUT and Thank You to Paradise Pointe Gold Course for hosting a gold tournament resulting in a $1,400 donation. The North Kansas City Save-A-Lot held a food drive for local food banks and we were the lucky recipients of about $1,200 in holiday food for our pantry and clients.  Non of what we do is possible without the help of the community and this past holiday season is a testament to what it means to be a community. Thank you to all for everything, even if I forget to mention you, we appreciate every single one of you.
