2707 Legacy Founders Award.jpg

Viroqua, Wisconsin - February 2019

The Viroqua Eagles #2707 were honored with the Inaugural Outstanding Community Organization Award by the Gundersen Medical Foundation. The award recognizes area groups that distinguish themselves through their compassion and commitment to helping others through their philanthropic support. Since 1975, the Viroqua Eagles have raised money for cancer research during a week of fundraising that includes a lutefisk meatball dinner, lumberjack breakfast, raffle, auction and telethon. Through the generous support of the community and Eagle members, $589,800 has been donated to the Gundersen Medical Foundation Cancer Research. Orris Pederson, a 71-year Eagles member and former Cancer Telethon chair, was on hand to receive the award.
