Modern Woodmen tee up to raise funds for Doe River Gorge projectPublished 9:00am Thursday, July 24, 2014
Golf, a match and Modern Woodmen combined to paint a successful fundraiser recently, as Elizabethton members of Modern Woodmen of America carded a total of $5,662 to help Doe River Gorge’s plans for a creative arts center.
The June 16 golf tournament’s contribution includes a $2,500 match by Modern Woodmen’s home office through the organization’s Matching Fund Program.
“The community truly came together to support a local need,” said local Modern Woodmen Agent Sonja Broyles. “That support is what it’s all about.”
The Matching Fund Program offers Modern Woodmen members nationwide the chance to show support for a community cause, organization or individual in need by holding fundraisers.
Modern Woodmen matches money raised up to $2,500. These fundraising projects contribute $9 million to community needs nationwide each year.
Coordinated by local Modern Woodmen members, chapters provide opportunities to take part in social activities and community service projects to meet local needs.
