Thumbs Up to Ed Carroll Motor Company, Inc.! The 30th Annual Westfest Auto Show was a huge success, raising a record $37,885 for Meals on Wheels!!! Many thanks to John Carroll who generously matched all donations, and to event sponsors whose combined generosity will buy 10,523 hot meals for home-bound seniors in Fort Collins. This year's sponsors included The Paul and Amy Hach Foundation, Janet Z Real Estate, Caliber Collision, Compliance Resources, Clear Detail, Scott Barber Apparel, Campus Liquors, Bischoff Insurance, Paul Chet Salon, RetroFit Builders, Bullhide 4x4, Colorado Financial Management and 1st National Bank. Without you, we could not fulfill our mission of ensuring that no senior is hungry or alone.
The Ed Carroll Motor Company's matching donation of $11,521 will be designated for the Karen Carroll Fund, a special fund for our most at-risk seniors who are unable to afford even modest fees for their meals. Thanks to John Carroll, these folks can rest easy and not have to worry about where their next meal might come from, or face life threatening decisions about buying food vs medicine. If you would like to donate to this fund, go to www.fcmow.orgor send your check to PO Box 424, Fort Collins, CO 80522 and indicate "Karen Carroll Fund".
