As part of local radio station KRKZ’s Charity of the Month promotion, a $500 check was presented to the Jason Goodding Memorial Foundation, thanks in part to a commercial sponsorship provided by Clatsop Community Bank.
The foundation was established to honor Sgt. Jason Goodding after he was killed in the line of duty in February 2016. It was founded to offer scholarships to local students.
It is funded in part by proceeds from an annual summer cornhole tournament held in Goodding’s memory. The 2017 tournament expanded by 10 teams (just one team short of capacity), included a silent auction, and generated $20,000 in proceeds compared to $10,000 the year before. Organizers continue to accept donations toward their 2017 goal of $25,000.
“We’re so happy to be able to support this effort,” Joe Schulte, Clatsop Community Bank president and CEO said. “I can’t think of a better way to honor Sgt. Goodding than by helping to advance the education and future of our local students.”
