The money, they felt, was nothing but a nuisance. And what was more, Violet was suffering from cancer — and the Larges knew that no amount of money could give her back her health .

They gave the money away to hospitals, churches, family members, cemeteries, fire departments, the VON, the Red Cross, the War Amps and many other organizations. Their generosity was unparalleled.
