When the Hawley Nuggets took on DGF Friday, the game was slightly delayed, thanks to a little holiday cheer. It is an update to a story we have been following all week.

A few days ago we told you about the honesty of Erica Clark who found a pile of one hundred dollar bills outside the McDonald's parking lot in Moorhead. She and police tracked down the owner of the $2,800 and the money was returned.

On game day, Erica Clark is all business. After all she assists DGF head coach, Mike Clark, her Dad. But as the Rebels and Nuggets got their last practice shots in, a little surprise from WDAY.

We called up Erica as we read a letter from an anonymous writer to her and all the Nugget-Rebel fans.

That's right, the anonymous donor graciously gave Erica a Christmas to remember. One hundred dollar bills. 28 of them. Her proud family watched the well deserved pregame Erica pep fest. A reward for her honesty and humble reaction to the attention she has been getting.

And to that anonymous donor? It sure felt like Christmas in Hawley Friday. And this MSUM freshman will find a good place to spend some of that money.
