The Elks National Foundation Anniversary Grant helped make possible a fantastic community event to benefit Keys Strong for Hurricane Irma recovery. Many people in the Florida Keys are still without homes and other essentials. Local musicians donated their time and talent to entertain during the complimentary community dinner July 14 at Florida Keys Elks Lodge. Approximately 200 people attended and $1,022 was raised. Eight new applications for membership were submitted as well because of this event.
