Sebring Lodge Supports SunTrust Foundation for Victims' Families
- Written by Sebring Elks
Members of Sebring Lodge wanted to make a donation to the SunTrust Foundation to aid the families of the five women who were killed by a gunman at a SunTrust bank in Sebring, Fla., in January. The lodge held a charity breakfast that was open to the public with all proceeds going to the families through the SunTrust Foundation. More than 30 volunteers set up and broke down the dining rooms and bar area, cooked, cleaned the kitchen, kept the dining tables cleared, served drinks, made coffee, kept the omelet stations flowing, acted as cashier, and served as hostesses who efficiently seated attendees. Including the $1,000 lodge pledge from monies donated by their Sunday and Monday night bingo players, the 439 paying customers at the breakfast, and the generous tips and donations, Sebring Lodge donated more than $7,000 to the SunTrust Foundation.
