$95,000 Raised for City Schools Athletic Programs

The 25th Annual Carl Koerner Sports Spectacular generated $95,000 for the Effingham Sportsbackers and the St. Anthony Booster Club.

The total raised means that each school’s athletic program will receive $47,500.

The first 24 events raised about $900,000, so Thursday’s total brings the amount raised by the Spectacular to around $1 million.

Special thanks go out to the Effingham Country Club(longtime behind-the-scenes organizers of the event), Mark Mayhood (who’s been there since the start), Troy Greene, Niemerg’s Steak House, Martin’s IGA, Jansen Cable Company, the Effingham New Car Dealers Association, and anyone else who contributed toward the effort.
