Every year the Kasilof Aerie #4317 supports the Way-Out-Women (WOW) cancer fund. They were able to raise $4,000 of combined donations through art, crafts, and more for a silent auction, and organized a fundraising dinner. 

The WOW cancer run is a yearly event where women snow-machine enthusiasts wear costumes and complete a 50-mile ride through the Caribou Hills. All the money directly benefits cancer patients in the local community.
