How the Elks Raise Money.
In Murphysboro, the Elks Club knows how to raise money. On a Saturday night, the members got a band, beer and food donated by local vendors to help throw a party to celebrate the life of Florance Alstat, the mother of Elk’s member Dale Alstat. All the money raised went to the Illinois Elks Children’s Care Corporation. The Elk’s Club in Murphysboro is number one or two in donations for the state of Illinois.
