Doug and Pat Austin decided to make a $200 donation to support ARF. Doug called me and told me he had learned of the theft of $50 in donations to ARF from Gary’s Deli where donations are being collected for the 2014 Mayor Max and the Mayors of Idyllwild Calendars. He wanted me to know he decided to replace the stolen $50 and more.

I think this is a wonderful thing. He was fine with the entire thing being anonymous, but I told him that I would let people know about his generosity since it is so helpful to ARF, is vitally needed and sets such a good example. He was fine with that, too.
