Continuing To Make A Difference In The Wood River Valley

WoodRiverFireandRescue

10/18/2013  Founded by Marty in January, 2013, a group of guys meet once a quarter, for 1 hour, learn about local non-profit organizations and select one to donate money to. So far this year we have donated $1600 to the Ketchum Community Dinners, $1800 to NAMI (National Association of Mental Illness) and most recently $2200 to Wood River Fire and Rescue, Fire Fighters Association. Our next meeting is October 22.

03/06/2013  On February 12, we had a very successful inaugural gathering. It was very informal and all participants were energized. Four non-profit organizations were nominated; Sun Valley Center of the Arts, The Hunger Coalition, Ketchum Community Dinners and Wild Gift. Excellent presentations were made. The selected organization, receiving $1600 was Ketchum Community Dinners. It was indicated that these funds should buy enough food to last a year! We are making a difference!

Thank you to the following Men Who Care: Art Sloan, Rev. Ken Brannon, Dan Ballbach, John Balint, Richard Smooke, John Wolcott, Adam King, Ken Pedersen, Mark Miller, Matt McNeal, Jack Grove, Jim Feldbaum, Michael Hobbs, Bob Jensen, Frank Willey and Marty Lyon.
