The Patchogue Elks Lodge 1323 presented a check for $1,100 to Patchogue-Medford Youth and Community Services Thursday from money raised at a recent Oktoberfest and from a grant.
The Elks' Oktoberfest was prepared by Chef Randy Tremble and Chef Nick Sweeney, which itself raised $500.
The other $600 came from a Gratuity Grant from the Elks National Foundation.
