The Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives Concern for Community Committee held an employee luncheon on October 26 to raise funds for the OEC Community Foundation.

Staff members donated $5 to attend the lunch, and an additional $5 to enter a raffle for prizes. Collectively, the staff raised $656 from the lunch.

Prize winners from the raffle include Kyle Hoffman, who won a weekly loaf from Panera Bread for a year, and Paul Jackson, who won a $300 Visa gift card.

Combined with the 2017 St. Patrick’s Day lunch, the OEC staff has contributed $1,058 to the foundation in 2017.
