To the editor:
The Abe Lincoln Disabled Children's Fundraiser
would like to announce that we have reached our goal of $10,000
proceeds from the fundraiser that was held on Sept. 16. The grand
total of $10,000 will be donated to the Charitable Trust of Lincoln
Elks Lodge 914.
The fundraiser included 76 golfers that participated in our golf
outing at the Elks, 84 motorcycles that participated in our 100-mile
marble run through Logan County, and approximately 800 people that
attended the performances of Still Kickin' and The Jane Doe Band
behind Character's Pub and Alley-Bi Saloon.
This goal could not have been met without the support of our
major sponsors, which include Millwrights Local 1051, Ra-Jac
Distributing, Alley-Bi Saloon, Stuart Solutions, Investment Center,
MII Fixture Group, Hooters, State Bank of Lincoln, Rock Solid Sound
and Productions, Picture This Photography, Coca-Cola, Illini Bank,
Regions Bank, Logan County Bank, Coy's Car Corner Inc. Superstore,
City Beverage LLC, and Character's Pub.

We would also like to thank the city of Lincoln, Phil and Becky
Gehlbach, Terry Haseley, David Faith, Greg Bersch, Bill Best,
Tiffany Koehne and the many others that volunteered their time in
order to make the fundraiser such a huge success.
We look forward to seeing everyone at next year's event!
The board of directors of the ALDCF,
Sarah Stuart Faith
