The VanDerGinst Holiday Bash to Benefit American Spirit Charities was held at The Stern Center in Rock Island, IL on December 7th and it was a huge success. Over a thousand revelers congregated to share the spirit of the season and some holiday cheer. The event garnered over $20,000 for American Spirit Charities. All of that money will be used in the Quad Cities area to assist the elderly, veterans, children, the arts and the environment. A portion will be used initially to provide winter wardrobes for local area children.
