Posted on

(HOWARD, SD) – Representative Tim Reisch and Senator Casey Crabtree will be serving the public in a new way on Giving Tuesday.

Tuesday, November 29th from 8:30-10:30 am, the two will be serving at Horizon Health Foundation’s Pancakes for Patients breakfast at the American Legion in Howard, South Dakota.

“It’s a fun way to get out there and help support the good work Horizon Health Care does for so many of our people and communities,” says Crabtree.

The pancake feed is part of several fundraising efforts to lift up the work of the Horizon Health Foundation. Some other initiatives include:

Club22 - SDN Communications and its members have pledged to donate $1,000 per clinic (22 
total) if an individual “sponsors” that community at $22 per month. 22 sponsorships would release 
$22,000 in matching funds and the sponsors do not have to live in the communities they sponsor. SDN Communications’ member organizations include: Alliance Communications, Golden West Telecommunications, West River Cooperative, Telephone Company, Santel Communications, Venture Communications, Interstate Telecommunications Cooperative, Midstate Communications and James Valley Telecommunications. 

Cancun Raffle Signing up at $22 per month enters you into a raffle for a trip to Cancun. The winner will be drawn on Giving Tuesday at 8:30 pm on Facebook Live. People may also purchase Cancun raffle tickets at $75 per ticket. Only 200 tickets will be made available.

“Giving Tuesday is always a great opportunity to put your gifts in the places they’re needed most,” says Horizon Health Foundation Executive Director Tracy Pardy.  “We are forever appreciative of the generosity of our communities and all they do to help us do the work we do.”
