We made our initial donation of $4,000 to EQUAL JUSTICE INITIATIVE. Our donation was matched by a corporate doner 2:1, growing our donation to $12,000 total! As of now we have $9,345 more to donate and are in the process of finding more corporate matchers! We will be making a second round donation at the end of this week or beginning of next week. The raffle will end at 11:59PM June 20th. Winners will be announce June 21st.
We’ve decided to organize a raffle to fundraise money and awareness for the BLACK LIVES MATTER movement. We believe it’s important as a community to stand up for what is right. We understand that our community has been hit especially hard during the ongoing pandemic and thought it would be fun to organize a community event!
