"Mr. Thanksgiving" Receives Donation

Updated:

 

Each year, hundreds of volunteers join Bob Vogelbaugh or "Mr. Thanksgiving" in putting on a community dinner for the holiday.

Hy-Vee presented Vogelbaugh a check for more than $14-thousand to help with this year's expenses. The stores sell turkey cards in November for the fundraiser.

"It's all thanks to everybody, Quad Cities, surrounding communities, its such a community event I can't thank people enough from the bottom of my heart, but its everybody involved," said Vogelbaugh.

Vogelbaugh says he is planning on another Thanksgiving dinner this year, what will be the 44th annual event.
