Things like this really make us happy…
As we mentioned about a month or so back, Josh Vernon and Megan Whiteside decided that they wanted to help the Animal Care Center so they started to put together a fundraiser near their home in Massachusetts. They asked businesses on island to donate some goods, gift certificates and more, and invited people who love the island of St. John, who happened to live in the Boston area, to attend.
The event was held his past Sunday, and we were floored when we heard how much they raised. According to Josh, about 30 people came and bid on 55 raffle items. They also had a 50/50 raffle. In total, more than $6,100 was raised for the ACC. How wonderful is that?! And even better, there is a huge box of supplies being sent down to the ACC.
So a big thanks goes out to Josh, Megan and all of the St. John fans up in Massachusetts who came out and supported the ACC. Well done.
