Purdue Crew donates $8,542 to LUM
At a special event this past Monday afternoon at the Purdue Boathouse, representatives from the Purdue Crew Team presented Lafayette Urban Ministry with a check for $8,542 for the LUM Good Samaritan Fund.
The monies were raised by the Purdue Crew Team members through the 7th annual Purdue Row-a-Thon event which took place on Saturday, February 6 at the Tippecanoe Mall.
The Purdue Crew Team Row-A-Thon Check Presentation event was hosted by David Kucik, Purdue Crew Team Head Coach. The “big” check was presented to Joe Micon, Executive Director of Lafayette Urban Ministry, by Phill Kuhl, the Purdue Crew Club president.
Special thanks to the Purdue Crew Team for their very generous donation — and their continued support of the families in our community through Lafayette Urban Ministry.
