It took a couple of weeks to get the numbers tallied, but we learned from Oscar himself this week that our February 11-12 fundraiser raised $300 for our cause. We have a lot of people to thank for this successful first fundraiser of 2017. First of all, a huge THANK YOU to Oscar and his crew for being such generous promoters of local nonprofits in our community. Everyone at Oscar's went above and beyond to help ensure we were successful and that people in the restaurant were aware of our effort. We are also very grateful to everyone who helped us promote this to family and friends and all those who came out to Oscar's one or more times that weekend to help us out. It was great to be there, seeing everyone come in with flyers ready, enjoying good food and sports!

The importance of this first fundraiser can't be exaggerated! At the end of each year after completing our boxes and shipping them out, we are well and truly a non-profit with very little working capital left in our bank account. Oscar's support is helping us get things started again in 2017, readying more development efforts and planning the purchases that will fill even more care packages this year. Again....
