A reader on Facebook thought this might be 10 entries for a house they are giving away! Andrew? https://www.stjude.org/give/dream-home.html?sc_icid=wtg-mm-dreamhome

In this story I showed a credit card charge labeled “memorial contribution to” for $1,000. https://blnnews.com/2019/01/18/citizens-of-normal-need-to-see-this-one/
I filed a FOIA request for more information. Normal has a new system to track requests. The County has a similar system. The difference is the County’s system works, Normal’s still needs some work.
Surprisingly the charge was made by the Finance guy:
Is this what you pay taxes for?
Maybe Andrew can explain what public purpose this donation served.

This just REEKS of illegal! IF he wins a house, WHO shares in the profits from the sale? WHAt did we donate $1,000 to St Jude for? Did WE get a receipt? I guess UPTOWN wants to REALLY get in the real estate business!!
“Memo Statement Only”
Do Not Remit Payment
Does this tell us anything?
Maybe automatic payments?
Interesting, in that Saint Jude is the patron saint of hopeless causes.
