ELKS News:

The Los Alamos Elks Lodge #2083 recently presented $8,000 in checks from proceeds raised at their annual Elks Golf Tournament for Charity event held last June.

The Elks presented checks to four organizations during the ceremony including $4,000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, $2,000 to the UNM Children’s Hospital, $1,000 to the Los Alamos Junior Golf Program and $1,000 to the Special Olympics of Northern New Mexico.

Through money provided to the Make-A-Wish Foundation last year, the Elks Lodge sponsored two local children, Madeline and Tanner, with their wishes.
