WHOOP! WHOOP! THANKS TO ALL THAT DONATED!
Emporia Area Match Day was held on Monday, November 13, 2023 and held incredible opportunity for nonprofit organizations within the greater Emporia area. On that day, online & check contributions were matched on a prorated basis. There was $175,000 in matching funds from: the Antes Charitable Family Fund; the Clint Bowyer 79 Fund; the ECF Fund for the Future; the Emporia Masonic Lodge No. 12, A.F. & A.M.; Joyce French; the Gilpin Family Fund; the WS & EC Jones Testamentary Trust, Bank of America, N.A. Trustee; the Laurent Charitable Family Fund; the Fred and Paula Neuer Fund; the Preston Family Trust; Merry and Charles Rayl; the Jane and Bernard Reeble Endowed Fund; and the Trusler Foundation.
The money earned by each non-profit group was an outright donation and may be used as they wish. PINK GRAVEL FUND choose to keep donations in the fund with the Emporia Community Foundation for future use toward grants offered year round to breast cancer patients and survivors.
I am just a 40 something married lady with kids who likes to ride gravel when life lets me. Just so happens I was called into the Cancer Club on October 31, 2019. Fought my fight with surgery, chemo, radiation, friends, family and lots of dark humor. I find sharing my experience helps me. Maybe it can help you.
