A very special thank you to our awesome pal, Macy Martin, for raising money for PRF at Stonewall’s Enterprenuer Fair. All 5th grade students were required to come up with a plan to make money selling a good or service, and budgeting their money based on expenses and income. Macy decided to have her booth called “CHILLIN’ WITH ZACH” and she sold $1.00 raffle tickets for a chance to eat lunch with Zach. That’s so creative! Macy raised $50.25 (after expenses!) and donated the money to PRF! Macy, you are an awesome young lady and we know you are going to be successful in your future. Thank you for helping us find a cure for Zach!
Eric Neely, of UK’s Keeneland Hall, is a Miracle Maker! Eric tried to raise money for Coins for a Cure last semester and only raised a little over $20. That didn’t stop him though! He tried again this year and by adding a few incentives, raised $1,225.00! How awesome is that! One of the incentives for raising their goal was for someone to shove a pie in one of the Resident Advisers face. So, they let Zach do the honors! He had a great time meeting the students of Kenneland Hall, and getting to know Eric Neely. THANK YOU so much for your dedication! Together, we WILL find the cure! There was also an article in the Univeristy of Kentucky’s newspaper, the Kentucky Kernel. Click here for a link to the story.
Thank you so much to our KUE Federal Credit Union for inviting us to speak at their 2013 Annual Meeting. You also helped us raise $232.01 for PRF by donating a $50 Visa gift card to rafflle. Zach always enjoys seeing everyone at these meetings. You guys are so awesome, and your dedication is appreciated more than you know!
