Maurice's Father's Day Challenge!

Maurice's Father's Day Challenge - Inspired by local Sioux Falls resident Maurice and supported by a generous $1,000 match from Midco!

After a call to action by local radio host Jeff Thurn (ESPN 99.1) to give to those in need this Father's Day, a local radio listener was inspired to give back. After his wife asked him what he wanted for Father's day, Maurice (pictured above) decided to take a week's worth of pay and provide pizza and sodas for Father's Day to all of the guests at the Bishop Dudley House. So cool!

New dads, old dads, I'm calling all dads!
Inspired by Maurice, I'd like to expand the challenge to all dads in the Sioux Falls area! Even if you aren't a dad, you can still help out. The challenge: open your wallet and help other dads in need this Father's Day.  Whether it's 100 bucks, 10 bucks, or whatever you can spare, 100% of proceeds will be going directly to bless the families served at the Banquet of Sioux Falls. These funds will be specifically used to buy groceries for families in need.

In honor of all the great dads out there working to make a better life for their families, we salute you this Father's Day. 

Thanks to the generous support of Midco, they will match all donations up to the first $1,000 raised - so let's blow the lid off this goal! A huge thanks to Midco for coming on board and thanks to Jeff Thurn and ESPN 99.1 for helping to get the word out!
