Celebrity Scoop Event Raises Big Money For EVSC Hangers
Last Thursday, Bobby and I had the opportunity to help raise money for Hanger's EVSC Clothing Resource. We actually began our fundraising efforts a few weeks ago. This entailed one of us wearing an ice cream cone costume, on Green River Road. Bobby was way too tall, so I drew the short straw. It was actually fun to dance around and be silly, dressed as an ice cream cone!
We did a little video, with an online donation option.
Maureen Barton with the EVSC says that over $26,000 was raised! That is going to go a long way, helping students get the every-day living essentials that they need.
There are a lot of people to thank, and a few awards were announced, too:
