Last month, members of the Evanston Knights of Columbus Council 1077 present a check for $1,600 from monies raised through their annual street-side Tootsie Roll collections to Braden Cretacci, manager of program development for the Illinois Special Olympics Area 18 (Evanston).  In addition to supporting the Illinois Special Olympics, checks from funds raised through the Evanston Knights of Columbus annual Tootsie Roll collections also went to help Park School on Main Street, Misericordia and special education programs for the intellectually disabled at area churches.
