We held our fundraiser on Saturday, February 27th. This is the only event held during the year to aid with the projects we sponsor.
The turnout was good despite the cold weather and, once again, we were financially successful. A good time was had by all attending. Gabi and her crew from Shanna are to be heartily thanked and appreciated for all the work it takes cleaning and setting up the site.
Tara, Anthonese & Carla worked a long day at the Hoopla table which was very popular. Donna ran the dominoes …Stanley the basketball and Dave the pool tournaments. All first place tournament winners went home with flat-screen TVs.
We were able to give away five dog houses with a drawing, allowing more dogs on the island shelter. The school children did a great job building and painting them.
Leslie, Miriam & Toni “womanned” the raffle booth, selling tickets, t-shirts and collecting donations.
Danny emceed and sent 26 prizes home with raffle winners. The live auction raised a nice amount.
Patti, Gabi, Jan & Hannah were kept very busy in the bar and ticket booth. Jan gets a kick out of the children coming with their crumpled dollars for Hoopla.
A highlight of the day was the children’s games with prizes conducted by Kay. No one does it better.
Once again, we heartily thank all the volunteers who gave of their time so generously and without whom this event would not be possible. GREAT JOB GABI!!
