Raffle supports local charities


To the Editor:

The Rotary Club of Palm Valley recently held their successful Caring For Kids fundraising raffle. They would like to thank the generous people in our community who supported this worthy effort, from the many local businesses who donated the prizes, to all the club members’ friends and family who purchased raffle tickets or made donations. The monies raised will help fund Peace of Heart’s AgriAutism program and the local chapter of Blessings in a Backpack who help feed at-risk children between school days, as well as other local charities.

A big thank you goes to Platinum Sponsors Masters, Smith & Wisby, P.A., Jerue Truck Brokers, Inc., River Capital Advisors, L.C., Mr. Walther Vliegen and Mr. Will Burke. We also greatly appreciate our Gold Sponsors Beasley, Bryant & Co., CPA’s, P.A., Chris Thompson of Ameriprise Financial Services, LLC, Fore Electric & Energy LLC, Cyndi King, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty, as well as Mr. Horton Hickerson and Ms. Susan Goldring. We are thankful for Anne Urban, owner of Destination Planning. Her eager generosity added the needed special touch for our online “Live Drawing.” And finally, a special heartfelt thanks goes out to Tim Ware of Digital Print & Media whose efforts on our behalf exemplified Rotary’s motto, “Service Above Self.”
