volunteers help out at 2008 NBC 25 Trophy Deer Pole
NBC 25 with help from
Jay’s Sporting Goods
Trophy Deer Pole at the NBC
25 studios in Clio MI. This is available for anyone who would
like to bring in and display your trophy each night from November 15th
– 30th. Each night there are drawings for 3 gift
certificates from local supporters of the event in including
Jay’s Sporting Goods.
At the end of the event, everybody that brought in a deer is
registered for the grand prize drawing of a deer rifle with scope
from Jay’s Sporting Goods.
Each night local
restaurants keep the hunters and their families that visit the
Trophy Deer Pole with hot treats from their restaurants inside
the “warming tent”. Different groups are also invited to help chief
Meteorologist Mark Torregrossa hang the deer on the Trophy Deer Pole
and this year Benefit4Kids helped out on November 16th
and 22nd. A big thanks goes out to Steve Hearing, Howard
Sheridan, John Gornyecz, Al Baggett, Brett Whitman, Scott Paige,
Lisa Paige and Matt Hill for their help this year.
Benefit4Kids has set up an interactive message
board where anyone can visit to ask questions, read about upcoming Outdoor Wish
trips, see our future plans for B4K and find out how you can help us help
kids. Please take a moment to stop in and say "HI", and help us further spread
the word about Benefit4Kids.

Receives 501(c)(3) Status
Benefit4Kids was officially granted 501(c)(3) status by the Internal
Revenue Service. This will allow certain tax deductions to those making
donations to Benefit4Kids. Anyone who has made a donation to Benefit4Kids
in the previous 15 months may also be entitled to these tax breaks
and should check with their accountant for more information. Granting
of a 501(c)(3) is a lengthy process that serves to protect those making
donations from false charities. At Benefit4Kids we are proud of the
fact that we can account for all donations coming to Benefit4Kids
and will gladly show where the funds we raise are distributed.
The Board of B4K would
personally like to thank each and every person who has helped Benefit4Kids
to become what it is today and what it will be in the future. Whether
that assistance was in the form of equipment, money, moral support
or prayers each and every contribution has helped us along the way.
May all of your quivers
be full and the winds in your favor.
