2015 Walk-A-Thon Results

First off, we would like to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this fundraising event for Jellybean. It was very hot outside, but I think we all had fun despite the heat. Hopefully everyone was able to cool down in a pool or sprinkler afterwards. As you may recall, this year we were raising money for the new carpet, cubbies, vines for the tunnel, and new plants for the children to plant. With your help, we raised the money needed to cover those updates. In total, we raised... (drumroll please)... $2,761.74!

The winners of the raffle ticket drawings will be contacted if they haven't been already. The winner of the 50/50 raffle is a friend of one of our families and won $1,337.50! She gave 20% of her winnings back to Jellybean and we are so grateful. The winners of the other raffles won gifts from Mac's Seafood Shack, Candylouu Photography, Balance Massage Therapy, Gabriel's Cheesesteak Hoagies, Brewed Awakenings Café, Maplewood Lanes, & Bracchi's Boutique. A big thank you to all of those businesses for donating their gifts. Apart from the gifts from the raffle, we'd like to thank the additional sponsors that supported us during this fundraiser: Costco Wholesale, Pepsi, Dairy Queen, & Hungry Howie's Pizza.

Apart from the money we raised during and before the event, we had so much fun with everyone. Seeing the kids complete their walk, get a balloon animal, and get their faces painted made the heat bearable. We hope you all had as much fun as we did. Pictures taken by Kiki from around the Walk-A-Thon will be coming soon! Look out for them via Facebook, Twitter, and email.

We can't give our thanks enough for those who participated. Supporting your child's school means so much to us here at Jellybean. We can't wait to do it all again next year!
