"As Director of a program that relies heavily on volunteerism, I am extremely aware of the significance of people who give of their time to help others," said Kristi Bachman, Executive Director for Northeastern Indiana CASA, a nonprofit advocating for children in Steuben, Lagrange, Dekalb, Noble and Whitley counties. 

"Your community is blessed to have so many generous people I have had the privilege to get to know at the Auburn Family Moose Center. On behalf of the children throughout Northeastern Indiana that will benefit from your efforts, we sincerely thank them for their generosity." 

David Young, Aaron Duzan, Paul Cherry, Tim Kochanski were the winners of the four-man Florida scramble.

The event included a golf outing, lunch, and silent auction to benefit the program.  The committee comprised of Scott and Cathy Pepple, Lonnie Fry, Dennis Carper, and Mack Short, worked for many months organizing, soliciting sponsors and teams, and many other responsibilities to put on a "wonderful" event.  Other Moose members donated their time throughout the day as well.

"The investment of their time in this outing has been amazing," said Bachman. The group is already planning a second outing for July 21, 2019. See event photos by clicking here >>>
