Purdue Crew donates $13,150 to LUM
At their end of the year banquet, the Purdue Crew Team presented Lafayette Urban Ministry with a check for $13,150 for the LUM Good Samaritan Fund – — a 35% increase over last year’s amount. This is the single largest gift to the LUM Good Samaritan Program each year.
The monies were raised by the Purdue Crew Team members through the eighth annual Purdue Row-a-Thon event which took place on Saturday, February 4 at the Tippecanoe Mall.
The “big” check was presented to Joe Micon, Lafayette Urban Ministry Executive Director, by David Anderle, Purdue Crew Club president and Dave Kucik, Purdue Crew Team Head Coach (pictured above).
