The Ed Flaherty Memorial Charity Drive, named in honor of one of our founders, is CL&D’s fundraising collaboration that raises money for worthy local causes including ProHealth Foundation (LakeWalk), HAWS Humane Animal Welfare Society, MDA Muscular Dystrophy Association, Rogers Memorial Hospital Foundation, JDRF Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation of SE WI, Atrium Health Foundation – Levine Children’s Hospital, Education Foundation of Watertown, Oconomowoc Public Education Foundation, Waukesha Education Foundation, ALS Association and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Our fundraising efforts consist of potluck lunches, bake sales, raffles, and our Annual Holiday Bazaar where fun prize packages are raffled off to CL&D employees. This year, prizes included Weekend Getaways, Backyard Fun Items, Milwaukee Brewers & Bucks and other Sports Tickets and Memorabilia, Kitchen Ware, Gas Grill, Generator, Restaurant and Retail Gift Cards, Smart TV and Tablets, Vacuum Robot, Cookware, Camping Equipment, Outdoor Patio Accessories and Yardwork Tools, as well as many others.

Because of the generosity and support of our suppliers, community businesses and employees, our fundraising efforts will enable us to present sizable donations to each of our charitable partners. Thank you to all who donated. Our efforts do make a difference!
