ABC Run #149 on August 31 was a success with $846 donated to Seedling Theatre thanks to the generosity of everyone involved. Thanks much to:
(a) Laurel & Larry Schumacher for being awesome hosts at their home.
(b) 30 attendees (and three other contributors) that donated a total of $846.
(c) Sharri Pelarske and Meg Anderson, for donating homemade preserves for our drawing.
(e) Seedling Theatre for donating tickets to an upcoming performance for our drawing.
(h) everyone who brought food! Too many to recall but I recall that it was fantastic!
Seedling Theatre is a wonderful theatrical program for children & young adults & adults with disabilities, as well as their able bodied peers. We have completed ten ABC runs for Seedling Theatre, generating total donations of $11,625. ABC runs have been Seedling’s major source of donations which has helped them to purchase sound equipment, pay copyright fees, give small honorariums to staff, and much more. Thanks a million to everyone for all the support
Donna Anhalt, the Seedling Theatre director, is deeply touched by the outpouring of support for Seedling. Before we ran, she took a couple minutes to express her sincere thanks and to tell us a little about Seedling Theatre.
After the run, we held the drawing for the door prizes which included two sets of four tickets to Seedling’s Christmas production (donated by Donna Anhalt), two jars of homemade chokecherry jelly (donated by Meg Anderson), and a gift bag containing homemade preserves (donated by Sharri Pelarske). The lucky winners were:
1. Megan Ebert won a set of four tickets to Seedling’s Christmas performance.
2. Pat Sheridan won a set four tickets to Seedling’s Christmas performance.
3. Joe Kinkade won a jar of chokecherry jelly.
4. Ann Aubry won a jar of chokecherry jelly.
5. Rachel Wells won the gift bag of homemade preserves.
A great time was had by all. See you at the next ABC run which will at Sugar Grove Nature Center on October 6, benefiting Heartland Head Start.
