Donations to Better Together campaign matched to $12,500
Thanks to Wayne and Janelle Floe, McGregor area residents now have an even greater reason to give to the Better Together Capital Campaign.FLOE International is challenging the McGregor area community with a matching gift of $12,500. Floe says, “Our family, and the team at FLOE International, are proud to support the hospital expansion at Riverwood so that our friends, family, coworkers and neighbors have the opportunity to receive first-class health care in the community where we live.”
Riverwood Foundation Manger Katie Nelson comments: “Riverwood Foundation is pleased with the level of support the McGregor area community has already provided and is excited about how the Floe donation will leverage new gifts.”
Shirley Callahan-Winegar, local resident and Riverwood Foundation board member, says, “The McGregor area has already contributed a generous $91,144 toward the capital campaign. Riverwood Foundation has set a goal of raising $125,000 from the McGregor area. This new challenge from FLOE means that gifts from McGregor area residents to the campaign will be doubled. We are so close. We hope this new match will encourage new gifts to the campaign and push us closer to our $2.2 million goal!”
Recent McGregor area gifts to the campaign have come from the Horseshoe Lake Association, Dean Masonry and Concrete, and the American Legion Auxiliary. All gifts to Riverwood Foundation for the Better Together Capital Campaign will be doubled until the $12,500 match is met.
A sub-committee of the volunteer campaign steering committee has been working hard to get the word out in the McGregor area. Members include Shirley Callahan-Winegar, Linda Farah, Robert Lewis, Art Orosco, Marty Ryan and Elsa Sorenson.
