Zentner Wins Award, Donates Proceeds to Local Fire Departments

Agent Dan Zentner supports two local fire departments with Richard Tobin Award proceeds.


Dan Zentner, an Agent with Catholic Order of Foresters, earned a Richard Tobin Benevolence Award. Zentner, of Cedar Rapids, qualified for the award based on Write Life New Members for the calendar year 2018. He chose to donate the proceeds to the Primrose Fire Department and the Cedar Rapids Fire Department. The departments will use the donation for bunker gear updates. “Cedar Rapids Fire works closely with Primrose Fire Department,” Zentner, who volunteers with the Cedar Rapids Fire Department, said. “As a member, I know funds are needed to keep things going.”

Catholic Order of Foresters’ top 20 agents earned Richard Tobin Benevolence Awards, worth $500 each, in 2018. Catholic Order of Foresters (COF) donates the money to the church, school or community organization of each agent’s choice. These awards are made possible through COF’s Welfare and Relief Fund. The late High Chief Ranger Richard Tobin established this fund to allocate money for fraternal good.
