On January 1st, my partner Penny and I had our annual New Years Day drop-in event at our home. This year, we turned it into a fundraiser for COPE. Entry was by donation, and once inside attendees enjoyed an enormous feast put together by Penny.
A big thanks to everyone who came out and made the New Year’s Day drop-in such an incredible success!
- At least 93 people came and enjoyed New Years afternoon at our home. It was a real treat to catch up with so many of you.
- One-time donations totaled a whopping $2,600! Even more amazingly, COPE now has increased its income by $100/month thanks to folks who signed up to be monthly donors — or increased their existing monthly donation! This means COPE will receive another $1200 over the next year.
So together on January 1st, we raised $3800 for COPE!!!
Special thanks to Penny for putting together the feast, Silvia and friends for bringing delicious pupusas, and Heather and Theresa for helping keep things rolling all afternoon.
Wishing you a wonderful 2014!
