Let's Rally Around Slef

Dan has had one long winter. After his wife, Amy, passed away unexpectedly in February, he was left to raise his 3 underage children by himself. 

He's in the process of adopting two of Amy's kids and found out that the child support for one of them will end as Amy is now deceased.

Finally, with COVID-19, Dan had to layoff most of his team (leaving him feeling terrible) and had to take a 60% pay cut from his employer. Dan also has exorbitant medical bills from Amy being in the ICU for 10 days back in December. 

Dan is an exceptional dad and extremely kind man. My dad, Mike, and the rest of the Bischel/Forbord clan, would really appreciate a financial and spiritual donation to make things a little brighter and easier during this difficult time.

Finally, Dan has been an unconditional substantial contributor of wine and spirits to the Taste of Lakeville and other charity events around the area. It only feels right to contribute back in his time of need.

Thanks for your support - it's much appreciated!
