MS Walk was a great success!!
2016 MS Walk Fundraising

Congratulations on a great 2016 fundraising effort!!

The M.S. Village People group effort set another all-time fundraising record of $21,500, beating the previous 2015 record amount by $1,200.
Mahjong Instruction 400 Sam's Club/Misc Contributions and Expenses/Net _______ $21,500

The Mahjong Instruction by Lisa French was new this year, and the financial results were outstanding for a first year event. Its net proceeds more than offset slightly lower financial results in each of the other activities.

To date for 2016, I have given the National Multiple Sclerosis Society $21,000, and I will write a final check (approximately $500) by the end of the month, after all final proceeds and disbursements have been submitted and accounted for.

Great job by everyone!! Wayne Grunewald
