My wife and I were special guests of the Loveland Elks Lodge 1051 North District Friendship Night Dinner, Dance, and Auction to benefit our 28 Hours of Hope on Saturday night. The Loveland Elks presented me with a check for $1,000, which is our 1st official donation for our 19th Annual 28 Hours of Hope April 13-14.

It gets even better. Between the dinner & dance tickets, live and silent auction, and donations from the crowd, the Elks raised a few thousand more for the 2017 28 Hours of Hope. We thank them so much for their generous donations. 100% of the money will go to Voices Carry CAC, Life Stories Child & Family Advocacy (Formerly A Kid's Place), and Namaqua Center to help fight child abuse in Northern Colorado.
