Frankfort Elks Make a $2,000 Donation to Kids Cancer Alliance

Posted by Elks 530 | Posted in Lodge News, News | Posted on 10-11-2018

Prior to our lodge meeting on October 1, 2018, the members of the Frankfort Elks Lodge #530 presented a $2,000 donation to the Kids Cancer Alliance. The Alliance operates Camp Indian Summer, located in Shelby County. This camp lets kids with cancer build friendships and enjoy a camp experience they would otherwise not be able to have, with nurses, trained volunteers, and a staff doctor on hand to ensure every camper’s safety. The lodge’s gift will pay the full cost of attendance for two campers next summer. The funds donated represent part of the funds raised by the Lodge’s recent Charity Golf Scramble.
