The Cass County Community Foundation announces its 2016 “Give Your Heart to the Community” Campaign.

CCCF President Deanna Crispen shared “We are very excited to once again offer our annual Valentines serenades and $1 hearts at Martins Supermarket to help celebrate Valentine’s Day and support the work at CCCF. This signature fundraising event is now in its 20th year and brings a smile to the faces of both young and old.”

For a $100 contribution, CCCF Valentine singers will deliver a live serenade to your loved one. Imagine the look on their faces when our merry band of troubadours arrives at their home or workplace and sings an unforgettable song just for them! Live serenades are perfect for spouses, friends and co-workers, employees and bosses, nursing home residents and shut-ins.

Serenades will be delivered on Friday, February 12th this year. CCCF guitarist Mike McCord has sang and accompanied the volunteer singers since the beginning and will be joined by his son, Jake, who also plays guitar. Anyone wishing to sing with the volunteers should call the CCCF office as soon as possible for instructions. Singers can participate the entire day or a portion of the day. Lunch is provided by Pizza Hut for all singers.

Martin’s Supermarket will also be selling $1.00 Valentine Hearts supporting the Community Foundation at their checkouts. Cashiers will offer the hearts for purchase from February 1st through Valentine’s Day. Those who purchase hearts may sign their own name or they may dedicate it to a loved one. The cashier who sells the most Valentines will win a Pizza Hut gift certificate!

Orders for serenades must be received -by Monday, February 8, 2016. Call the Cass County Community Foundation at 574-722-2200 for more information. Place your order today and give your heart to the community!
