Daddy Daughter Night 2020


Wyatt Page (with parents, Doug and Emily) were presented a check from the Adult Halloween Fund-Raiser at Lodge meeting on November 19, 2019. Wyatt has terminal brain cancer but always has that wonderful smile even the day after radiation and a diagnosis that was devastating. After a request to U.B.E.T. to match these funds, we received a check for $2000.00 that was presented to the family at Christmas time. The Lodge mourned the passing of Wyatt who passed away on January 14, 2020. He left a legacy of love and compassion with his dying wish to help other children fighting cancer by creating Wyatt's Comfort Buddies and delivering 106 bundles to children at Primary Children's Hospital and the Huntsman Cancer Center prior to his death. His family will carry on that legacy with a foundation in Wyatt's name that will continue to create and deliver Wyatt's Comfort Buddies in the future.

On June 2, 2020, Exalted Ruler, Clark Rowberry, presented the Page family with a check from U.B.E.T. for $2500.00 to assist with the creation of Wyatt's Comfort Bundles. Pictured above is "Flat Wyatt" and his parents. The Bingo Committee also donate $500 and that check was presented at a later date. We are proud to be able to support this wonderful cause and that the donation from U.B.E.T. will be yearly.
