Members of the St. John Go-fers team, from left, Jim Beach, Nora Murphy, Bridget Murphy, Nancy Jones and Kris Kohnke, celebrate winning the $5,000 first place prize for their participation in the Giveback Charity 10,000 during a reception Wednesday. In total, $40,000 in donations were handed out to charitable organizations. Teams and individuals competed to earn money for their favorite charity by earning virtual flags for volunteering their time at local nonprofits and charitable organizations, shopping at participating locally owned businesses and making financial charitable donations. The St. John’s Go-fers prize will go to St. John’s Church. Lawrence GiveBack, part of The World Company that owns the Journal-World, is a “buy local” program designed to boost our local economy and raise funds for local charitable organizations.
