We just wrapped up everything from this year's St. Patty's Day Shirt Fund Raiser and are proud to announce that $5786 was raised for our two charities.
We changed quite a bit this year to make it easier for folks to order and pay for the shirts...we are confident next year will go even more smoothly and we can continue to raise money for a good cause.
If you have any good ideas please pass them on, and if you'd like to get involved, we'd love the help!
Online sales have come to a close for this year's St. Patty's Day T-shirts. You can still purchase the shirts at Estero Station 43 located at 21500 Three Oaks Parkway in Estero. During the day if the crew is on a run the shirts can be purchased at the Admin building across the parking lot from 43 on the second floor.
Those will be filled on first come first serve. Thanks for all the support this year....stay tuned for our totals for this year's charity!
We take care of others all year long and this is our time to take care of each other.
We are happy to announce that the money raised this year will support
two wonderful causes:
Firefighter Mike Dew (San Carlos Park Fire). Mike is married (Fran) and is the father of 2 boys and 1 stepson. He has been battling stage 3 rectal cancer for almost a year.
$1000 will be used to set up a fund in memory of Eric Madden Jr (Eric & Heather Madden-Bonita Springs Fire) who tragically drowned last year at the age of 18 months. The fund will be used to provide free swim lesson to those that cannot afford them.
