And the winner is……………..
Congratulations to Nancy who is the big winner of the Grades of Green BCBG $500 gift card drawing. The drawing was held on Tuesday at our Board of Directors meeting. Board member Ranae DeSantis, the donor who provided the matching funds, picked the name out of the box.
Once again we would like to thank each and every one of you for generously supporting Grades of Green. Your contribution will ensure that we can continue to roll Grades of Green out to schools across the country in order to inspire and empower students to care for the environment.
The fundraising drive was a huge success. By September 15th, we had raised $12,602.19 in matching funds which exceeded our $10,000 goal and the DeSantis Family Foundation surprised us by matching that entire amount. In addition, we received three $5,000 sponsorships for a whopping grand total of $40,201.38 raised! We had over 100 donors including an 88 year old woman who heard about our cause and brought a twenty dollar bill over to a friend’s house to help out.
We are honored by your generosity especially in these hard economic times. We encourage you to check our website from time to time to see how we are doing and if you ever have any feedback, we would love to hear from you. Also, please add us as a friend on Facebook – we have a lot of fun posts going out you don’t want to miss.
