OLIVESBURG -- Modern Woodmen of America members in Ashland and Mansfield recently helped raise money for the Crestview Athletics Boosters with a special fundraising event on Saturday, June 24.
The event, which included a 4-man golf scramble tournament and several other golf-related competitions, raised $6,500. This includes $2,500 matched by Modern Woodmen through the organization’s Matching Fund Program.
The funds will be used to help with the continued outside development of the new weight-room facility, including a pavilion, park benches, and a memorial for Walker Ramsay, a Crestview student that passed away unexpectedly last year.
The Matching Fund Program offers Modern Woodmen members nationwide the chance to show their support for a community cause, organization or individual in need through fundraisers. These fundraising projects contribute more than $10 million to community needs across the country each year.
“The community truly came together to support a local need,” said Lauren Brown, a Crestview alum and local Modern Woodmen volunteer leader. “That support is what it’s all about.”
Coordinated by local Modern Woodmen members, the fraternal financial services organization’s Summit chapters, chapters and youth service clubs provide opportunities for members to take part in social and educational activities and volunteer projects to meet local needs.
