District No. 6120

Southampton Lodge's Golf Committee presented donation checks

Shown above (L to R): Exalted Ruler Rich Lalomia, Anna Capazelli of Southampton Hospital's Coalition for Women's for Women's Cancer, Co-chairmen of the lodge's Golf Outing John Washabaugh and Ken Oliver, Leading Knight Dave Raynor, and Past District Deputy and lodge sponsor Fred Follett.

     This  past  September,  new  members  John  Washabaugh  and  Kenny  Oliver  saw  the  fruition  of  many  months  of  planning,  organizing,  and  fundraising  at  the  Southampton  Elks  Golf  Outing.  Having  recently  joined  Benevolent  and  Protective  Order of Elks they immediately  wanted  to  get  involved  in  the  Order.  They  found  an  opportunity  in  the Lodge's annual golf outing. The Southampton Lodge holds a golf  outing every year and donates  the  proceeds  to  local  charitable  causes.  This  year  the  Southampton  Elks choose  two  local  charitable  organizations  to  donate  the  proceeds  to:  The Southampton Hospital  Coalition  for  Women's  Cancer and  the  Animal  Rescue  Fund (ARF).  Through  John  and  Kenny's  hard  work  the  Lodge  raised six thousand dollars to donate to these two causes. They were able to secure  several  corporate  sponsors  and  numerous  donations  from  local  businesses,  which  made this such a successful event.  
     Charity is the highest virtue of BPOE and we believe it should ever rule us in our  hearts and in our lives. John and Kenny have demonstrated that belief and have shown  our community what the BPOE is all about.
