It does not benefit the Cook Family, which is how it was presented four years ago after the tragic death of Mr. Cook. At that time, they made it seem as though the family would starve and be on the street and that's why they were having the fund raiser. I remember sitting in the stands at a football game and cute little elemtary kids were coming around with handmade posters begging for money.<quoted text>
I really want to believe you are not a Springboro Citizen. Your post is incredably insensitive and mean spirited. Please take the time to research the Cook Family Fun Day, who it is dedicated to, why, and who it benefits. I find it hard to imagine someone in our community could be so insensitive and callused whatever thier political position or views. Very ....very poor taste.
Now, it seems like Mr.Cook was a wonderful philanthropist and we should honor his memory by donating to an unknown cause. I say unknown, because the letter of incorporation filed with the Ohio Secretary of State on May1, 2012, after committing to the turf deal, only says that they will donate for activities for the children of Warren County. It really doesn't matter what they say when collecting, they are not legally bound to give those funds to Springboro Schools.
I have nothing against the Cook family. I don't know themc. I just want to know exactly where my money is going when I make a donation.
