Holiday Generosity Abounds at Boone Dam

The Boone Dam Combined Federal Campaign raised more than $13,000 for charity during three events in November and December.

JANUARY 10, 2017—Those events were a skeet shoot, a chili cook off with golf shoot-out and a cook-out with silent auction. A committee comprised of representatives from each of the contractors at Boone Dam worked diligently on the campaign, more than tripling their initial goal of $3,500.

In addition to the Combined Federal Campaign, the Boone project also collected over $2,000 in new toys for the local Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. Committee members took a bus load of new toys to the Marines just in time to distribute for Christmas. Boone workers also assisted local firefighters with the Gatlinburg Relief fund.
