Last week, the Merrick Foundation held the “Raffle for Charity” during the Merrick County Fair.
The winners earned a $100 donation from the foundation to their local charity. There was one winner for each night of the Merrick County Fair.
Winners of the raffle were: Dave Eckstrom, Liztenberg Health Care Foundation; Janet Danhauer, Merrick Foundation’s General Scholarship Fund; and Barbara Paup, Merrick County Child Care Center.
The most frequently recommended charities were the Nebraska Therapeutic Riding Academy, Liztenberg Health Care Foundation, Merrick County Historical Museum, Performing Arts Center, Merrick County Child Care Center, Youth Softball/Baseball Programs, Bader Park, Heartland Tribute to Vets and the Merrick Foundation General Scholarship Program.
