Light a Candle Scramble

Thank you to ALL who took part in the Light A Candle Scramble,

With grateful hearts we want to thank the Elk’s 249 members, the Gamble Scramble committee, our hole and merchandise sponsors, and friends for making the Light A Candle Scramble on August 3rd, 2018 a record-breaking event!!!  Through your generous support we raised a total of $5,000!   With these funds the Light A Candle program at Gritman Medical Center will provide resources and services to improve quality of life and ease some of the pressures that come with facing cancer directly to our local community members.  We went from ALL pink last year to including all the colors of cancer.

Our contest winners all received Moscow Elk’s 90th anniversary balls.  Longest Putt:  Women – Heidi Heath 9’11”, Men – Wayne Krauss 12’4”.  Closet to Pin:  Women – Julie Smith 10’1”, Men – Rick Hull 23’4”.  Longest Drive:  Women – Sharon Kimberling, Men – Lance Abendroth.  Women’s winning team with a score of 33:  Barb Heimgartner, Debbie LeBlanc, Sharon McCoy and Leslie Hendrick won passes to Bryden Canyon Golf Course.  Our mix team winners scoring 30:  Heidi & Jason Heath and Juli & Brent Smith (Thanks for your extra help) won passes to Lewiston Golf and Country Club.  This year we had two chip ins:  Bob Lynd and Barb Heimgartner each received a $50 Happy Days card.  The guessing game winners: Terri Dollar’s 77 (actual 75) won the jar of golf balls and Bev Rhoades guess of 523 (actual 513) obtained a lifetime of tees!  Our two bingo winners:  $100 Loco Grinz gift card to Kyle Nelson and Lindsey Creek wine to Kathy Weber.  We had some rounds of golf in the live auction which included U of I Golf Course and Palouse Ridge golf course (Thanks Pat Dollar).  Steak and Salmon dinners were enjoyed by all thanks to our lovely kitchen crew and homemade fudge and ice cream sandwiches from us (Thanks again Mayor Lambert for grilling our salmon).  Special thanks to Mary Manderschied for the 1,000,000 “tips”!  There were several raffle winners – if you didn’t win you can talk to Carter…he drew the tickets!  If you couldn’t join us this year, come next year August 2, 2019!

Our Thrivent sponsor provided us with free t-shirts with the logo “live generously” and without a doubt you all proved that true!   Enjoy a few pictures from the Rally.  And once more, THANK YOU!  We are so blessed to have such generous members and sponsors that enrich the lives of others all while having a fun time!

Annette Smith, Mary Nelson and this year Carter Nelson helped!
