The Ed Flaherty Memorial Charity Drive, named in honor of one of our founders, is CL&D’s fundraising collaboration that raises money for worthy local causes including ProHealth Care Foundation / LakeWalk for Cancer, American Diabetes Association, Muscular Dystrophy Association of Southern Wisconsin, Humane Animal Welfare Society, Best Buddies WI, American Heart/Stroke Association and Levine Children’s Hospital.
Our fundraising efforts consist of potluck lunches, bake sales, raffles, and our Annual Holiday Bazaar where fun prize packages are raffled off to CL&D employees. This year, prizes included Waterpark Family Getaways, Hot Air Balloon Ride, Green Bay Packers and other Sports Tickets and Memorabilia, Fishing Charter, Gas Grills, Generator, Restaurant and Retail Gift Cards, Smart TVs and Tablets, Vacuum Cleaners, Amusement Park Tickets, Camping Equipment, Outdoor Patio Accessories and Yardwork Tools, as well as many others.
Because of the generosity and support of our suppliers, community businesses and employees, our fundraising efforts will enable us to present sizable donations to each of our charitable partners. Thank you to all who donated. Our efforts do make a difference!
