On behalf of the Ladies of Maple Grove Park and the Imlay City Eagles FOE #4082 we would like to thank all the businesses, friends and neighbors of Imlay City and the surrounding area that helped in putting on a very successful Benefit for Krystal Whitney/Keith Kelley and family. Liz Soto Rosillo, a friend and neighbor of the family came to the Eagles and requested help to put on this benefit. We are truly amazed and grateful to the community for their support to put this benefit on in just over one week.

The total raised was over $18,000 and has been deposited in the Trust at Lakestone Bank with more still coming in. Our hearts go out to the family, we hope that the money from this benefit will go a long way in helping this family establish a new home and begin on healing and stability in their lives.

I am sure there were many more businesses and individuals that donated and as hard as we tried to keep good records, someone always slips between the cracks and for that we apologize. But a HUGE thank you to all the donors and to the over 500 people that came through the doors Sunday to help make this benefit a success. To Liz Soto Rosillo, and her group of friends and neighbors in the kitchen, we thank you for a fabulous job preparing the food. The Imlay City Eagles can never thank everyone that helped enough, and we are proud to live in a city where everyone can show this kind of love and support for a local family in need. 

Thank you,
