The first stop was at the Janesville Post Office where the Postal Workers were collecting food items for the local food shelf. They were given $1000.00 in cash. The second stop was at the Beloit Food shelf collection point where another $1000.00 in cash was given to them. Then the third stop was back at the Janesville Fairgrounds where a young lady that is serving in the Army Reserve and is being deployed to Iraq soon. She was given almost if not over $1000.00 so she can help sponsor the Veterans Flight event that is sponsored by a local RV dealer called http://www.vetsroll.org/ They take Veterans on an all expense paid trip to Washington DC to see the war monuments that have been put up in their honor. I think they said it was a 5 day paid expense trip and they see more Sites in DC as well.
Gary graciously gave the earrings to this very nice young lady. There were not too many dry eyes in the room when this happened. Kudosís to everyone that was involve in the event an especially to Gary Lawrence for his nice gesture.
