|Members of the First Presbyterian Church of Easton |
that participated in the Highmark Walk were honored with a
"Golden Soul"award from ProJeCt of Easton
as the faith group to raise the most money for the agency
in the walk.
|Members of the Palmer Kiwanis Highmark Walk team, |
Ken Marino, Santa Wright, Debra Ashton-Chase and
Mike Hahn, earned the Golden Sole Award from ProJeCt
of Easton as the agency’s top fundraising business team in the walk.
The two honored teams were some of the more than 70 walkers who earned more than $9,000 for ProJeCt of Easton during the charity walk last June. Participants registered for teams supporting ProJeCt, vying for top awards in fundraising dollars earned.
"Congratulations to our winners, and thanks to all who participated and supported ProJeCt’s efforts," said ProJeCt of Easton Executive Director Janice Komisor in an announcement of the awards. "We are very close to our goals of 100 walkers and $10,000 raised, and we would love to have a youth group participate next year to help us meet those objectives."
