goodDeeds • August 2019

It comes as no surprise to us that many of our county partners do more than just record Deeds — they perform goodDEEDS. By sharing as many of these good deeds as possible, we hope to raise awareness of the various charities and organizations they contribute to. We want to build their momentum and effectiveness in achieving their very important goals.

Fidlar Technologies would like to recognize Howard County, Indiana and the terrific charitable contributions they have made to a local non-profit, Bona Vista. Bona Vista serves handicapped and disabled persons in the Howard County area and seeks to raise funds for their efforts throughout the year with the help of one major event in May, titled “The Greatest Spectacle in Tasting” – a play on the Indianpolis 500’s “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing”. Each May, the community gets together and enjoys a beer and wine tasting event, sponsored by local companies including wineries, distilleries, distributors, and more. Businesses from all over the area bring in donations in the form of gift certificates, baskets, and other items.

Jennifer Jack and her staff were able to rally the troops and provide five fantastic basket donations to be entered into the event’s silent auction. Jennifer encouraged county staff to provide baskets for the event and, together, they were able to create an impressive offering, including baskets from Jennifer herself, Lerche & Sons Electric, Artie’s Tenderloin, Cutting Edge Salon, and Clean Cut Lawn Care – all of which are owned or operated by family members of the county staff. Jennifer and her staff, proud of the donations they were able to provide, attended the event, where the baskets auctioned off for an estimated $300 – $400 total donation to Bona Vista. With the success this basket donation saw, Jennifer foresees this donation becoming an annual good deed.

“I am very proud of the consideration and effort my staff put into this wonderful event. My husband and I have a personal interest in Bona Vista’s work, and it’s fantastic to see the thought, care, and effort that they put into what they do. We were very happy to be able to help in some small way.”
