First of all, I just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who entered our raffle. The response was simply overwhelming.
We received more than 3,000 entries. We received entries from 46 states plus Puerto Rico and, of course, the Virgin Islands. We received the most entries from Massachusetts, followed by the Virgin Islands and then Florida. My gosh. My heart is so full.
The Island Health and Wellness Center helped me last month when I thought no one could, or no one would. I promised to repay Sandy for her kindness, her care and her overwhelming compassion. And thanks to all of you, I was able to do so … and in an amazing way.
We raised $30,670!!!!!
All of the money has already been given to the Island Health and Wellness Center. The money will be used to subsidize office visits – the center charges $50 a visit while an average visit costs them around $200. It will also be used to hire additional staff. I honestly could not thank you all enough.
Now who wants to know who the winners are??!! Well then check out this video! (And please know that both Sandy and I absolutely hate being on video – )
And yes, that was a champagne bucket we used to hold all of the raffle tickets. Because why wouldn’t we?
Again, so much love to you all. If I could hug each and every one of you, I promise I would.
