Sixty-eight grant requests were received for the D16 charity games fund.  $1492 was collected for the D16 charity games on March 28 and 30; three charities were chosen as grant recipients.  These funds were distributed equally to:

Friends of the Family, Denton

Mowat-Wilson Syndrome Foundation, Houston

The foundation promotes awareness of Mowat-Wilson Syndrome which is a medically complex syndrome that impacts many of the body systems.

Sick Children's Clinic, Lubbock

The clinic treats indigent children in the early stages of sickness, thereby lowering the infant mortality rate in Lubbock and surrounding areas.

TO ALL CLUBS:  For those who participated—THANK YOU!!!  Let's try for a LARGER participation next year!!!
