Painting it Forward for The American Cancer Society Relay for LifeFundraiser for Moorpark Relay for Life Team-Julie's Roses:
We have been doing a lot of fundraising events recently and I wanted to highlight a really successful one that really pulled at our heart strings. One of our guests, Rachel Read asked if we would hold a fundraiser for her Relay for Life Team-Julie's Roses in Moorpark, that was started in memory of her mom, Julie. We of course said we would be honored to do it!
She scheduled it a week in advance and in that short week she was able to get over 35 people to come paint and contribute to the cause. It was truly amazing to see so many people come out to support her and the American Cancer Society. It was a true testament to her mom's legacy and to Rachel's dedicated circle of friends. It was great to see friends and family painting, drinking and laughing together while raising money for a cause that is particularly special and hits home for all of them. We were thrilled we were able to donate $360 to the American Cancer Society via Julie's Roses. Their team goal was to raise $9,000 which would be an amazing accomplishment, but they blew right past that and raised $11,627.61! AMAZING!
We have realized that we have such a great platform to offer charities a unique and creative fundraising activity. We really never could have imagined all the ways that we could give back to the community via our business and are very eager to hold more of these Painting it Forward events. So if you are involved with a charity or are participating in a fundraising event such as a walk or run, etc we would love the opportunity to help!
