The Living Bank receives money from the ACBL Charity Foundation
Dan Morse chose The Living Bank, Houston, to receive $1,000 from the ACBL Charity Foundation Board of Trustees and members of the ACBL. Dan is District 16's National ACBL Board Member. Dan, along with District 16's Charity Committee Chair and Unit 174 Board member Nancy Strohmer, recently gave the check to Kelly Perdue, President and CEO The Living Bank.
The Living Bank's mission is "Raising awareness of the critical need for organ transplant donors through public education and advocating for donors and their families."
The funds were raised by all of you who play in special charity bridge games year-round in order to make contributions such as this possible.
