A crowd gathered on Sunday March 25 at Winjum's Restaurant and surprised Jason and Maggie Demars with a Hidden Gem Award.
The Hidden Gem Project is sponsored by the Faribault Daily News and co-sponsored by The Virtues Project - Faribault. Many extolled the virtues of Jason and Maggie and they shared the history of 10 years of generosity.
Each year for the past 10, Jason and Maggie hosted a winter golf event on Roberd's Lake. Each year the funds raised helped a local organization or family in need. Jason and Maggie are humble and quick to point out the cooperation of family and friends and especially Pam Sartor; owner of Winjum's Restaurant in hosting this annual event. Caring, creativity, helpfulness and service were only a few of the virtues mentioned as people talked about Jason and Maggie.
