Cerebral Palsy Fund Board
The Ohio Elks Association's major project is Cerebral Palsy. Elks across Ohio contribute thousands of dollars and countless hours helping children and adults, along with their families with the daily challenges associated to life with CP.
Cerebral Palsy Fund Board Information & Update
At the Ohio Elks Association Spring Convention in Columbus, the Ohio State University Football Season Ticket Raffle tickets were handed out to your District Representatives. Please make sure these get to your Lodges to be sold as soon as possible. The drawing will be held at the Ohio Elks Association Fall Reunion in August, so be sure to bring your tickets and money to the Reunion.
Time of drawing will be determined at a later date. Let's make this year's sales the best yet! Your District Reps also have coin banks, so if you are in need, please let them or myself know. We will get them to you right away. Your District Reps received the CP pins that were given to them at the Grant Disbursement Meeting earlier this year. Cost is $3.00 each or 2/$5.00. If you are in need of any more pins, please let me know. We do also have some of the pins from past years. If you are looking for a specific one, we can help.
We are always looking for ways to raise monies for our State Major Project, so if you have a good idea, please don't keep it to yourself. We would love to hear your suggestions.
