Letters to the Editor

We would like to give a shout out to all of the participants and sponsors of this year’s events!

We host two big events and are happy to report that with the help of our sponsors and participants, 100 percent of the donations, equaling over $20,000 in cash and prizes, are donated to the recipients.

This year we were joined by, Reelsville Volunteer Fire Department, “My Mistress” monster truck, Christian Motorcycle Association Blessed Bikes, Putnam County National Guard obstacle coarse, The Melinda K and entertained, and Brazil’s Mayor Brian Wyndham auctioned off several items for us.

This year the Dash for Ca$H helped two young children who need service dogs. Lilly Grimes of Putnam County will be receiving her diabetic service dog soon.

Lilly and family hope to receive their final training with her dog by Christmas!

Nicolai Madison, five years old of Sellyville, has a good start on his autistic support dog. While $8,000 is a start, Nicolai and his parents still need an additional $4,000, to complete the purchase. Any donations are appreciated.

Our second event is a bike night, that is held at, and for, the Reelsville Volunteer Fire Department. We serve chicken/beef and noodles and fixings with all money going to the fire department. We were joined by Hippy Chick Karaoke/DJ and hoops by Putnam County National Guard and several vendors.

A big shout out to Brazil’s, Jack’s Fine Foods, for always stepping up and helping on both events! Berrys Hog Farms, of Putnamville, for the hog, JJ Wilson for cooking all the meat. Papa Johns and McDonalds of Clay and Putnam county for supplying all paper products, Pappys BBQ, Lou’s Diner, Putnam Inn, numerous donations of door prizes and family prizes. A&A T-shirts.

The generosity of so many people, not only monetary but in volunteering of time is greatly appreciated. We would like to thank the area newspapers for helping to make these events successful and letting both counties know that we have an awesome community! Without you these results would not be possible!

Thank you,
Greencastle, Ind.
