Scoops for Heart help

Dear Editor,

One of the many wonderful things about our Clarkston Community is that so many residents, organizations and businesses are willing to partner—even in times of economic hardship—for the greater good.

The Children’s Heart Foundation was grateful to receive the support of Culver’s of Clarkston and Oakland County Parks & Recreation as sponsors of the second annual Scoop for Hearts, a fund raiser benefiting children born with congenital heart defects.

On Tuesday, Aug. 16, hundreds gathered at Culver’s where Oakland County Parks & Recreation provided giant inflatable to entertain families free of charge.

Through donations and Culver’s charitable gift of 10 percent of food sales, $1,000 was raised for the non-profit.

A heartfelt thank you to our sponsors, partnering organizations, and to the many families who joined us in the spirit of giving.
