Our grand total raised for our 2nd Anniversary Fundraising was
This surpassed our ultimate goal by $7561 and that means we will be installing FOUR more picture windows – the three originally planned between the playroom and the outdoor area and one more from the playroom overlooking the garden.
Big, big thank yous go to every single person who donated to the sanctuary between March 17th and June 13th. We had about 500 donations during the fundraising drive and every donation helped us surpass our goal!
Special thanks to Karen and Don Young for the $7,500 in matching donations and the Hugh and Jane Ferguson Foundation and Tony Stewart Foundation for their $5,000 grants.
And (drumroll, please…)
Congrats and thanks to:
1) Tamela, who raised $2,391 (and counting!) through her T-Arts Etsy store full of one-of-a-kind jewelry and other wonderful hand-crafted ape pieces.
2) Felicity Wood, who raised $1,465 through her friends and family (and herself) by asking them to give to the sanctuary for her birthday
3) Leslie Sodaro, who donated $1,200 during the three months of the fundraising, giving generously on top of her regular monthly donations
