A Rapid City organization gives money to local charities

Posted:

On Monday evening one organization in KOTA Territory decided to help local charities. Right before the Movies Under the Stars event at Main Street Square, the Day of Excellence gave $14,000 to non–profits in the area as part of the 2013 Giving Back Program.

Day of Excellence gives people in the Black Hills the opportunity to learn about personal and professional development. This evening seven charities received $2,000 each.

The charities are the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Black Hills, Hardrock Club, Love INC of the Black Hills, Make–A–Wish South Dakota, Seventh Circuit CASA Program, South Dakota Youth Hunting Adventures, and Starting Strong RC. Organizers say they are glad they can help.

"We have a lot of people who have paid admission into it and it's a great way for us to give back. What else would we do for the community but give back? It's a great leadership thing for us to do," said Bob DeWald, President of Day of Excellence.

The organization started giving to charities in 2010 and since then they've donated $115,000  to local non-profits.
