Note from Mark and Sharon Hoelscher

Countryside Support & Memory Center teamed with Marc & Sharon Hoelscher and the local Street Masters car club, to organize the 114 mile dice run that had 120 participants who raised over $7900.00 in an afternoon of fun, food, and fellowship. This money was raised through the purchase of the dice run cards, silent auction items, 50/50 drawing, donations, and the Dakota Quilt 2019 raffle.

“The Dakota Quilt 2019 was won by a local cancer patient, Kellie, who is currently fighting the battle against breast cancer. Family and friends gathered to help her fight the battle with a weekend of shopping, celebrating life, and the “ceremonial” shaving of the head. Kellie’s winning ticket was bought the day of the Rods & Rides Dice Run with Kellie being notified she was the quilt winner during a barbecue at her home.  Kellie’s luck had not run out for the day! As she was walking from her patio into the garage, she looked down and there on the concrete was a shiny penny, face up. Robert sent her a penny from heaven for luck, just as he always picked up pennies for good luck during his short life. That is one penny Kellie will definitely need to keep!”

Attached is a picture of Kellie (center) the winner of the Dakota Quilt 2019, along with quilters Doug Parker, Sarah Gallagher & Karen England, Patrick Callahan, representative from the Street Masters car club, and Marc and Sharon Hoelscher, co-chairs of the event.

Thank you again for your contribution and support of cancer patients in the Pierre/Ft. Pierre area. Every penny really does count!
