Staff members of Howard Hanna Real Estate Services’ Lewiston office on Wednesday presented a $2,000 check to representatives of the Oishei Children’s Hospital in Buffalo. The donation event, held at Lower Niagara Moose Lodge 584, represented one-half of proceeds from Howard Hanna’s 50/50 drawing held locally to benefit its “Children’s Free Care Fund.”
According to Howard Hanna literature, “ ‘Children’s Free Care Funds’ ensure medical care for every child in need regardless of coverage or the family’s ability to pay – even if their insurance has been exhausted or the patient requires cutting-edge treatments that insurance may not cover.”

Gigliotti joined Welch to pull names for cash prizes. Winners included: Tim Kulack, $1,000; Karen Burns, $250; John Reynolds, $250; Louan Boconeg, $100; John Labrum, $100; Tina Asklar, $100; Melissa Agrew, $100; and Carol Urlsin, $100.
