DONOR: Thorpe & Co. Jewellers

DONATION: $1,000

ABOUT THE DONOR: Located at 501 Fourth St., Thorpe & Co. Jewellers has a four-generation, 115-year history in downtown Sioux City. The store, which offers high-end jewelry and gifts, is owned by Rusty and Karen Clark. Rusty's dad, Thorpe Clark, was a founding Tailwagger, a group of business leaders who worked behind the scenes in support of Mr. Goodfellow Charities and its Little Yellow Dog Auction.

DONOR COMMENT: "We like to donate to organizations that deal with children, particularly children that are in need, and Goodfellow fits that bill. We always give to child-related entities, and we don't just do it at Christmastime," Rusty Clark said.
