Multiply your donation dollars for tragedy campaign by teaming up with Buckeye Vodka

There are many ways for Daytonians to donate to The Dayton Foundation’s Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund. But one Dayton business located close to the scene of the tragedy is offering a way for donors to multiply their dollars.

Buckeye Vodka announced that it will match donations it receives from the community, up to $5,000, for the Tragedy Fund. 

On top of Buckeye Vodka’s match, another anonymous donor has pledged to “match the match” with up to an additional $10,000, Jim Finke, CEO of Crystal Spirits (Buckeye vodka) said this morning.

The anonymous donor’s pledge has increased from up to $5,000 to up to $10,000.

Together, these donations could total $20,000 for the tragedy fund, he said.

Buckeye Vodka urges the community to donate through them to multiply their donation dollars.
