Landmark of Taylorville Donates Over $1000 to Tornadoes Sports Boosters

A check presentation was held during halftime of the boys high school basketball game between Taylorville and Mattoon on Friday night as Landmark of Taylorville presented a check in the amount of $1,550 to the Tornadoes Sports Boosters. During the varsity football season, the Tornadoes racked up 155 first downs which for every first down, Landmark donated ten dollars to the Tornadoes Sports Boosters. Jason Johnson, General Sales Manager at Landmark of Taylorville, told Regional Radio News that they enjoy doing this every year, especially helping out local sports during a difficult time for schools due to funding cuts.

Tornadoes Sports Boosters member, Shelly Cappellin, says all the money goes back to the sports programs and they try to give back to every program.

All the Tornadoes football games were broadcast on The Big 870 AM, 96.3 and 94. FM Newstalk WTIM and online at taylorvilledailynews.com. Miller Media Group President, Randal J. Miller, was also in attendance during the check presentation.
