On August 12th and 13th, IBEW members from Local Union 2067’s Unit #3 partnered with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) to raise money for Type 1 Diabetes research. Five JDRF volunteers and eight IBEW 2067 members held a 2-day Hot Dog Sale transforming part of Unit #3’s Union Awareness Funds into $1,500.00 that went straight to JDRF. Unit #3 Chairman, Bro. John Rogers, and Member Bro. Mark Woitas were the IBEW lynch-pins, both worked the whole weekend, and also coordinated all logistics and IBEW volunteers. “We almost tripled our input money with this fundraiser” stated Bro. Rogers, while fundraiser veteran Bro. Woitas remarked “We had a good weekend; working together for an important cause such as JDRF is time well spent”. Instrumental to the effort was Randy Durovick, Fundraising Coordinator with JDRF, “The funds raised from IBEW Local 2067 will play a key role in helping researchers find the cause and cure of Type 1 Diabetes. Thanks to IBEW Local 2067 for being a community leader for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.”. IBEW Local 2067 Business Office and Executive wish to thank Randy, Mark, John, and also the volunteers from JDRF and IBEW who made the event a success.
