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 American Heart/Stoke Association, Humane Animal Welfare Society (HAWS), Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), American Diabetes Association, Best Buddies, ProHealth Care Lake Walk and “Charity of Choice”.
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 Weekend Getaways, Hot Air Balloon Ride, Milwaukee Bucks and other Sports Tickets and Memorabilia, Fishing Charter, Gas Grill, Generator, Restaurant and Retail Gift Cards, Smart TV and Tablets, Vacuum Robot, Cookware, 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!
