Nerves on edge. Why? In addition to a slew of thunderstorms playing havoc with daily routines and allergies making even the burliest types look weepy, the past weeks of fundraising activities have taken a toll on locals. The good news is that the end of the gnarly weather, pollen blowouts and the non-profit round-the-clock events are winding down.
Happily, all that fundraising work has paid off. For some like Genesis Women’s Shelter and The Family Place, it tallied success in the million-dollar range. Still, there are loads of others who have worked tirelessly for lesser goals and are either celebrating them or nearly achieving them.
But don’t go a’thinking that summer means everything is going to dormant. No way! That’s the time when the roll-up-the-sleeves preparations take place to get ready for the final sweep of fundraising of 2016. So, if you have an event that gets a date and a location for the fall or 2017, don’t forget to submit it for the MySweetCharity Calendar.
