And so far the totals are impressive:
In cash, we took in $1221
In checks, we took in $3075
Robbie's record sales were $327
According to the bid sheets - we also need to follow up with people who committed an additional $5000.
The ticket sales should bring us around $4000.
And, the day after the benefit, we were contacted by a grant agency who donated an additional $1,000.
That is a total of around $15,000. INCREDIBLE!!!!
Most of the people in the room wanted money to go to a King Arts family whose son has lymphoma. You can see Raymond's video here.
We also committed to giving $500 to Washington School for their grocery program, $500 to the Dajae Coleman Foundation, $250 towards glasses for kids at Oakton School, and the remainder for Kingsley groceries and a district pool/operating costs.
