And the winner is……
Thanks to Atlantic Orthodontic Center in York for sponsoring Team Aidan for the Christmas season. They put up a beautiful display about Aidan, sold raffle tickets, and matched donations from their employees. The snowball effect of putting our need out to the community has been amazing! I keep running into people who thank me for giving them the opportunity to give and for putting our heartwarming community building story out there.
This fundraising story has been largely driven by one connection I made when I was new to Voices from the Heart. Meredyth was new as well and, both of us being introverts, we became fast friends. She then gave me the name of her daughter Christie as a babysitter who did wonderful things for my boys. Then we became fast friends. These were the first 2 people who jumped on board with fundraising and got their respective communities involved. From that came the Powerthirsters, First Parish Church in York, and Atlantic Orthodontic Center.
So Aidan pulled the winning tickets today with Meredyth (great fine motor skill). 16 fabulous prizes were given away! I’ve contacted all the winners that I know and Atlantic Orthodontic will be contacting the rest by tomorrow. Congratulations to grand prize winner on the Nook……Rob B.
