A HUGE thank you to everyone involved in the REST Fest fundraiser. Our hope was to raise 6000$ toward our total goal of 27,000$ needed for our commitments.
The evening was fun, we had great music, lovely people attended, almost all of the silent auction items sold, most people went home with delicious baking, and people were very, very generous.
In total, we raised 16,320$ and donations are still coming in.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
All of the funds raised (and that continue to be raised) go directly to the support of the newcomers we have sponsored.
We have such a generous and welcoming community, aren't you all proud to be part of it?
Thanks again from me and from your REST Steering committee, and from the organizers of the REST Fest.
