Willows Methodist Church Pastor Dave Reick presented a check to "Wings of Eagles" Founder Georgia Alvarez this week for $2,811.11.  

   That's how much was raised for the non-profit at a Tri-tip Dinner and Magic Show Fundraiser at the Church on January 27th.  It featured two magicians performing slight of hand, illusion and tricks with animals. 100% of the proceeds were donated to "Wings of Eagles" and the families they serve.
