The third annual “Spring Fling” was held at Milwaukie-Portland Lodge #142 recently. The event held on June 10 was a joint effort between the Elks, the Portland Metro Rotary Club and the Lake Oswego/West Linn Soroptimist Club to raise money for two local charities. Approximately 300 people attended the dinner event, raising $7,000. The funds were split between the Elks Children’s Eye Clinic Building Fund and a Village for One, a local group that helps children who have been involved in sexual trafficking. Accepting the check on behalf of the Elks Children’s Eye Clinic Building Fund was Don Jensen.
