CELEBRATION OF OUR 10TH
“FLAPJACKS FOR THE FOUNDATION” FUNDRAISER
By Colin Thompson
The Bent Tree Foundation held its tenth fundraising event at FATZ Café on Saturday morning, March 24. All our attendees enjoyed the breakfast that FATZ so generously provides for various charitable and humanitarian purposes. With the help of many wonderful volunteers, who served as waiters, servers and dishwashers, we were able to provide our attendees with a fine meal plus the enjoyment of being served by their neighbors. This fundraiser was held to raise money for the Foundation’s Stray Animal Care Fund and the Scholarship/Grant Fund.
The Foundation sold raffle tickets for the opportunity to win one of eight prizes. Our winners were: Margie Hall won an Amazon Echo; Stan Taraskewich won a bottle of aged single malt Scotch Whisky; Kay Lawrence won a bottle of Moet & Chandon Champagne; Elden Bonnette won a bottle of aged single malt Scotch Whisky; Shirley Wilson won a $50 HoneyBaked Ham gift certificate; Barry Foy won a $50 HoneyBaked Ham gift certificate; Bob Jorns won a $25 Last Catch gift certificate; and Dean Ferris won a Carriage House gift certificate for five lunches for two people. Congratulations to all our winners!
We so appreciate all of your donations, your attendance and your volunteerism. The Bent Tree Foundation could not function without all the wonderful community support.
We look forward to our eleventh FATZ breakfast next November. Please remember to support the business sponsors who continue to assist the Foundation – particularly those listed above.
