Community support was key in success of fundraiser to support family of Jeff Braunsdorf

The Whitley County Family YMCA would like to thank everyone that supported the family cookout on October 17, 2009. The generosity that was shown from the entire community was so great to see. From the donations provided by Big G’s, Walmart, Culligan, Subway, Parkview Whitley Hospital, Whitley County Community Foundation, Columbia City Parks Department, and many other community members, we were able to serve around 450 people. 

Because of these donations we were able to provide 100 percent of the free will donations collected to the trust fund set up for the children a Jeff Braunsdorf, a dedicated father, community member, and volunteer coach. The turn out was excellent, the donations were great, and we could not have been more thrilled about the reception shown for the entire event.

If you would like to still make a monetary donations to the children’s trust fund, please send donations to the Whitley County Family YMCA, Jeff Braunsdorf Fund, attn: Steven Kuhn, 950 East Van Buren Street, Columbia City, IN 46725. If you have any questions feel free to contact Steven Kuhn at 244-9622. Again thank you to the entire Whitley County community.
