Lodder Christmas 4 Kids Fundraiser: Thank you to all that made it to Big Bulls for our fundraiser. What a great time, huge turn out and jump start to getting us started on Christmas for our kids. Thank you to all that couldn’t make and used Venmo to still support us! We still need a lot of winter jackets, sweatshirts, hats and gloves. Our drop box is at Lodder’s Plaza 2275 Millville Avenue. It’s on the front sidewalk under the awning to the left of the entry of Happy Hour House. Thanks again, I was really worried how this year would go and it was our best fundraiser ever! It also helps that I have an incredible group of helpers to make it all happen! – Dave
