Council 8009 of The Knights of Columbus, in Sebastian, presented two checks to The ARC of Indian River County from funds raised with their Annual Tootsie Roll Drive Fundraiser.

They would like to give a big shout out to our community that stepped up with their donations to make this possible. Without the community backing, this Fundraiser would not have been as successful.

The Knights of Columbus would also like to thank the businesses that so graciously let them utilize their store entrances:

  • Walmart US 1 Sebastian
  • Publix US 1 & Barber Street
  • Publix 510 & 512
  • Publix US 1 Roseland
  • Dunkin Donuts US 1 & 512

The two checks given to The ARC of Indian River County, from the proceeds from this year’s Tootsie Roll Drive, totaled $5,594.85. ARC SUNUP received $ 2,797.43, and the ARC Boy Scout Troop received $2,797.42.
