The Williston Area Chamber of Commerce presents North Dakota Association of the Blind (NDAB) with $1,100 Donation

Williston, ND, February 24, 2017:   Each year, the Williston Area Chamber of Commerce donates a portion of the proceeds from their Annual Banquet Auction to a local non-profit organization. This year’s recipient was the North Dakota Association of the Blind, who was one of the many groups that participated in the Chamber Community Connections Expo in September of 2016. Because of the generous bids of the Chamber guests, they were able to present a check for $1,000.00 to the local chapter of the NDAB. In addition to the silent auction proceeds, the guest speaker for the evening, Mr. Dan Meers (AKA: KC Wolf, Kansas City Chiefs Mascot) graciously donated another $100.000 to the NDAB from his book sales at the event. The Chamber President, Janna Lutz, proudly presented the donations to local NDAB representative, Janelle Olson, on February 23, 2017.
