Gopher Count Sponsors
As of October 2004 the Viola Gopher Count is a 501c3 tax-exempt organization. This IRS designation allows us the ability to provide the needed paperwork for a donation to be a tax deduction for your group or business. We are sincerely thankful to those who have supported our event in recent years. These donations help to offset the cost of our event and allow Gopher Count to support local high school scholarship programs, the townhall roofing project, and improvements to park shelters and playground equipment. In the coming years we will hopefully provide improved plumbing/toilet facilities in the townhall. The Viola Gopher Count wishes to thank the following generous donors:
Budweiser, Schott Distributing, Pepsi Cola, Rochester, Kreofsky Building Supply, Dreher Electric Inc, Peoples State Bank, Appel Tire/Service, Haley Comfort Systems, Autumn Harvest Days Corn Shredding, Beck Implement Inc, City Auto Glass, Dover Firefighter Relief Assn., Rochester American Legion, SEMA Equipment Inc.
