VITARTAS EARNS ENF HONORARY FOUNDER STATUS

MARION, OH (August 22, 2003) – Paul Vitartas earned the status of Honorary Founder, given to any B.P.O. Elks member who has donated over $1,000 to the Elks National Foundation. Vitartas, Past Exalted Ruler (PER) of Marion lodge 32 (pictured at left), was presented an Honorary Founder certificate by Brad Smith, current Exalted Ruler of the Marion Elks.

The Elks National Foundation serves to collect donations from Elks members and distribute them throughout the country. The largest recipients are college bound young people. In fact, the Elks are second only to the US government in the total dollars awarded for college scholarships. This year, one scholarship was awarded locally to Haley Titus of Marion Harding. The Elks National Foundation also supports individual Elks state charities (the recipient in Ohio is Cerebral Palsy) and many Elks activities such as the Hoop Shoot and the Soccer Shootout.
