Knights Present Checks to Local Organizations

Submitted by cooladmin — Fri, 09/06/2013 - 12:29 AM — Last Updated: Sun, 03/18/2018 - 1:33 PM

On Tuesday, September 10 th , 2013, the Knights of Columbus, Council #11188 presented checks to two organizations that provide assistance to intellectually challenged individuals within the Columbus / Franklin County area.  Grand Knight Tim Hickey presented checks in the amount of $372.51 to Brian Asbury, Director of Development and Public Relations for the Heinzerling Foundation and to Denise Showalter, Office Manager of the Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio (DSACO).  Both representatives gave very informative presentations about their respective organizations.  The money was collected by members of Council at the intersection of Hamilton and Refugee Roads back in May as part of the State Council's Measure Up program. Over the years, this program has generated thousands of dollars for these organizations and many others that serve needy individuals in Ohio.
