An exuberant Gerrardo Gomez, front center, helps his fellow preschoolers celebrate a $2,172.18 donation to Cerebral Palsy of Tri-County Missouri (CPC) in Webb City on Thursday. The money was raised by the Knights of Columbus 42nd Annual Tootsie Roll Drive for Persons with Developmental Disabilities. Presenting the check to Executive Director Christy Graham (center back row) was St. Marys' KOC Grand Knight Denny Desmond, pictured right. The funds will be used for resurfacing the playground area at the center and also will help in improving the facility's heat and air conditioning system.
