Then we sent out press releases to the local media. We received a phone call from Brian Byers on Tuesday morning and he stopped in to discuss it with us. He offered to help spread the word, and we agreed to run some advertisements on his show to help get the word out. Now we were cooking.
When all was said and done we had collected 210 pounds of food (100 pounds over our goal), and we had sold over 900 roses!!!
We extend a heartfelt Thank YOU to all of you who came and donated food. We had people coming in with bags of food instead of just 2 cans. We were so excited to see the boxes fill up. It was amazing to see the amount of food we collected.
Next year we plan to do it all over again! We can't wait to start planning our 2nd annual event.
