The 7194 St. Martins Knights of Columbus Council presented Nicole Slusser, Central Missouri Honorary Flight representative, with a check for $ 4,373.04 during their February 11 meeting.
The funds are proceeds from an annual Cosmic Bingo event that was originally scheduled for March 21, 2020. Due to COVID-19, the event was postponed several times, but ultimately had to be canceled. Although refunds were offered, many sponsors and attendees asked that the money be used for the original charitable causes.
“The Knights of Columbus would like to thank everyone who donated to this event,” the council said in a press release.
