HBIA presented Lake with a $15,198 check on Thursday December 27 at their office location.

“It’s the essence of the season,” said Durckel, “There’s so much love and so much giving within our membership and within the community of Helena. So to be able to be apart of this is really truly special.”

Lake will use the money to help pay for her cancer treatments.
