Here at United Way of Clare and Gladwin Counties, our hearts and prayers go out to the family of Ethan Gage, who passed away tragically Monday, Feb. 4, in an accident at work. Ethan was a wonderful father, husband, and son, and his loss will be felt by all who loved him, including the Clare community, where he served as a firefighter.
Thank you to the businesses who have chosen to participate in our February Round-Up Campaign, including Ace Hardware in Clare and Ace Hardware in Gladwin, Witbeck's in Clare, Family Farm and Home in Clare, and Fruchey's in Beaverton.
MIRACLE MINUTE FUNDRAISERS
Thank you to everyone who chose to give during our Miracle Minute events, and all volunteers who helped out to make the evenings a success. On Oct. 12, around $265 was raised in Clare, plus $130 from their 50/50 raffle; and $634.88 was raised at Beaverton High School during the Battle for Butch.
Gladwin High School's Key Club raised over $102 on Sept. 28 at their game against Roscommon. Farwell and Harrison schools each held Miracle Minutes on Sept. 14, raising about $280 and $100, respectively.
That means around $1500 was raised in Clare and Gladwin Counties during our Miracle Minute fundraisers!
