60 • A&E DECEMBER 2016 MD Engraving Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Owner: Michelle "Mickey" Metcalf Military "My first love is the military and fire department. I always give a military discount to anyone who has served. I donate money as well as auction items for various military events, (including a) golf tournament—I sponsor a hole; and military family auction night—I give money plus an auction item. On 9/11, I buy the military, fire and police lunch at one of our local fast food places. My fire guys get basically the same treatment." American Cancer Society "I am a cancer survivor but have lost many family members to the terrible disease. I will help Relay teams with fundraisers by making products at cost in order for them to sell. I donate money and time to the AMC and again give a price break on things that they order."
