Moraine Park Technical College's Fond du Lac Kiwanis Satellite Club recently presented a check for $1,600 to the St. Baldrick's organization.

A quilt, handcrafted by members of the Moraine Park satellite club, was displayed at various community events with all proceeds from the raffle tickets donated to St. Baldrick's.

Kathy Hass, a satellite club member, said the club was looking for a service project that fit with Kiwanis' mission to change the world, one child and one community at a time. "Making the quilt to donate to St. Baldrick's was a perfect project for us," she said.

Robin Schroeder, organizer of the Fond du Lac St. Baldrick's event, said the $1,600 donation is a great help in supporting St. Baldrick's, which sees 82 percent of their budget going to fund childhood cancer research, but the quilt service project also helped create awareness about their organization.

"Getting the word out about what St. Baldrick's is, and how we are helping children who are suffering from cancer, is so important. We are very thankful for all [Moraine Park's Kiwanis Satellite Club] did to make their service project so successful."

Craig Schwanz, a Moraine Park automotive technician instructor, was the lucky winner of the quilt.

Moraine Park's Kiwanis Satellite Club is an extension of the Kiwanis Club of Fabulous Fond du Lac host club.
