2021 Chris Patterson Memorial Foundation Donation
On September 23rd, we received a $2,600 donation from the Chris Patterson Memorial Foundation in support of our music and performing arts programs. Pictured here is Music Director, Sharon Dalpini, receiving the check from Chris’s dad, Bob Patterson. In 2012, Immanuel’s own SPC Chris Patterson was killed in action while serving his country in Afghanistan. To honor his legacy, the Chris Patterson Memorial Foundation was founded to support area performing arts programs. The Foundation regularly hosts two fundraising events each year: a motorcycle ride and a red tie gala. The proceeds from these fundraisers then go to students or organizations in support of Chris’s passions: God, country, and music. This marks the 5th year for the annual motorcycle ride, and we are proud to be the recipient of this generous donation!
