“Winfield Lodge No. 732 was a significant presence in the community over the years supporting many philanthropic efforts throughout decades,” stated Yazmin Wood, Executive Director of Legacy Foundation, “When the Winfield Lodge merged with El Dorado’s membership, the local building was sold, but Winfield Elks worked to retain the monies generated by the sale for good works to be accomplished in Winfield. This was possible through their partnership with Legacy Foundation. And, by endowing those funds with our community foundation their work will continue forever.”
