The East Erie Moose Lodge hosts a night of giveaways for the community.
The lodge gathered non-profits to distribute gaming funds that the lodge has accumulated over the past year. The money comes from gaming at the lodge. This year, $167,500 went to 38 non-profit groups, a tradition that has been going on for several years.
Jim Stewart of the East Erie Moose Lodge says, “we’ve been doing this the last three or four years to help improve conditions in Erie County… to distribute the gaming monies which we receive from our members during the year”.
The remainder of the money from memberships and gaming went back into the lodge.
