The Women of the Moose on behalf of the Grand Island Moose Lodge No. 180 recently purchased a "brick" for The Miracle League of Grand Island and Western New York, and have issued a challenge to other community groups to raise money for the Miracle League by hosting some kind of fundraiser. The Grand Island Moose Lodge will host a Monte Carlo night on March 5 from 7-10 p.m. with a live auction for prizes at 10 p.m.  "This is open to the community and we'd we love to pack the house with Miracle League supporters," said Lynn Dingey of the Women of the Moose.

The Miracle League is an international organization with more than 235 Miracle League organizations in 45 states across the country that are giving those with disabilities a place to play and experience all that baseball is about. For more information on Miracle League, call 1-770-760-1933 or visitwww.miracleleague.com.

Admission to the Monte Carlo event is $5 a person for $500 in Grand Island Bucks, redeemable for gambling, or at the end of the night to bid on auction prizes.

Those who are willing and able to make a donation for the auction and would like to drop it in the mail may send it to Grand Island Moose Lodge No. 180, WOTM, 2524 Grand Island Blvd., Grand Island, NY 14072, or call 773-4543 to make arrangements for pickup.
