To the editor:
The Copper Country Elks held a benefit for Bob Kezele on Saturday, May 31 at the lodge.
Bob is recovering from a severe injury he suffered last winter when he slipped and fell on the ice. This event was a wonderful success because of the following generous donations from local businesses, fellow Elks and friends.
There was much love in the room that day and I am so happy to have been the co-ordinator for such a worthy cause.
We all know how difficult it is when a loved one is living through a medical crisis. The expenses over and above what insurance covers is daunting. We were so happy to have helped a bit with those expenses.
