On March 19, the Carson City Elks held their annual dinner event to raise funds for Nevada State Elks new major project.
Sabina Bye was the event chairperson in coordinating this annual fundraiser. Once known as Project Safe Haven, the board of directors felt the program needed “revamping” and expanded to meet the current needs of each community within this state.
Blue Pigs are given to every new Elk member in Nevada, and they are encouraged to donate generously. Additional blue pigs were put on every table and members “tipped the pig.”
The Carson City Elks event, which is one of many events held throughout the state by all local Elk lodges, raised $1,334 in tips for the St. Jude Ranch for Children.
All proceeds go to helping abused and neglected children in recovering from their trauma and to help transform them and their family’s lives by empowering them to create new choices to help build a better future. This helps break the cycle of abuse and neglect by mending their spirits and giving them new hope in a caring community.
