Tallahassee Elks Provide In-kind Donations of their Lodge Building

Tallahassee Elks Lodge #937 was pleased to provide an in-kind donation of space to the Tallahassee Lions Club as a rendezvous point for their fundraiser, the sale of the Lions Club’s Christmas Boston butts. The Lions Club meets weekly at the lodge for its luncheon meetings.

Tallahassee Lodge provided another in-kind donation of facilities Feb. 27 to the Leon Wakulla Retired Educators Association. They used the lodge kitchen to prepare a spaghetti dinner for 200 patrons. Tickets for that event were presold and the LWREA was able to fund its scholarship program again this year because of help from the Elks.
