Media Moments (Oct. 16, 2014)

Generous gift worth over $4 million to 4-H
A beautiful story was shared on KARE-11 in June on love and loss and Curt Chergosky's generous gift worth over $4 million to 4-H. His gift supports 4-H programs statewide and in southwestern Minnesota, as well as a scholarship in memory of his late fiancée, 4-H program coordinator Andrea Ruesch. If you have not already shed a tear over this story, please take a few minutes to watch what KARE-11 called a gift for the ages.
