  6. Flo & Joe MurrayHonoring the memory of a loved one
    A donation to WSSRF in memory of a loved one is a meaningful way to contribute to WSSRA. Funds from memorials are deposited in WSSRA's Flo & Joe Murray Endowment Fund* and become a perpetual tribute to the deceased. If you would like memorial donations for a family member to be directed to WSSRA, please contact Marianne at 847.455.2100 for memorial cards to be used at the wake or memorial service.

    * The Flo & Joe Murray Fund for Special Recreation, named in honor of former WSSRA Executive Director Sandra Gbur’s parents, was created by the WSSRF to support the WSSRA mission. Through a partnership with the Oak Park River Forest Community Foundation an endowment fund has been created. This interest earning fund will annually pay that interest to WSSRF for many years to come.
  7. In-Kind donations are also welcomed
    We always need items to be used as auction items or raffle prizes at our many fundraising events. Contact Marianne to arrange drop-off or pick-up of items.
