Each year the entire town of Hermiston, OR comes together to honor Michelle “Mush” Monihan and raise money to cure type one diabetes in her memory. The Hermiston Tavern hosts a pool tournament and raffle raised an outstanding $14,000 this year!
Businesses all over town donate raffle prizes and everyone shows up on Saturday to play pool and swap memories of Michelle. Even the other bars in town get in on the action. Amanda’s, Russ’s Place, Midway Tavern, Last Chance Tavern, and of course, the Hermiston Tavern all donate to JDRF in honor of Mush.
To Dan, Jack, Terra, Traci, Gayle, Sandi, Charlie, Lisa, Karen, and Karnie: Thank you for keeping the memory of Michelle alive and supporting JDRF as we work hard to turn type one into type none!
