Sent 2022-04-03: Dog Rescue Fundraiser - 

On Saturday March 26, the community of SCCE came together for a fundraising event to support Lost Ball Rescue who has helped us in the past with stray dogs that have wandered into our community.


So many residents helped with this event from Woodshop donations, handmade quilts, Dog themed baskets, to cashiers, kitchen help, set up and clean up and more. Special shout out to Wade Prater and his band Whisky Dent who donated their talents and tips to the event. Tiffany Prater who created all the posters for the the silent auction, each individualized for each item.
 

The Harlingen community gave generously and big thanks to Sally Hardy who obtained all the South Padre boat trips. Each contribution

was large and necessary for the success of our event.

Many have been asked how much we raised. We raised $4,993, rounded out to $5,000. We did have to cover the cost of the food which was $672.21 so our total donation to Lost Ball was $4347.79.
They are very appreciative, thank you to each and every one of you who helped.

Please take a little time out of your busy schedule and look below. Here you will see pictures and videos of what I'm talking about. I'm sure I'm saying this, not only for myself, but for all of those here in Sunshine, especially those who had the wonderful Christmas Carolers sing to them last night in front of their homes - Thank You to Pam Lacy, the Christmas Carolers, Ron Clark in his sleigh, the Elves, those who came out of their homes to listen and anyone else involved in this event.

From what I witnessed; a super fun time was had by all. Not only was everyone spreading cheer, but I was also told by a couple of residents that it was great being able to get out and see their friends and also meet some of the new residents they had not had a chance to mingle with to date.

Thanks again Pam - YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!
