The Homewalk Committee is the only committee that works year-round and puts on the biggest fundraiser for the club. This year the committee had a big goal – reach $20,000 in sponsorships and they knocked it out of the park with a total of $20,650. That’s 25% more in sponsorships than 2016 and 39% more than 2015!
The committee managed this feat even without a designated sponsorship chair by targeting a wider audience using a new business list provided by the Chamber of Commerce in addition to previous donors. Sandy Weimer, Melissa Anderson, Ellisa Olsen, Michele Atwell and Carole Calvert Baxter teamed up to mail letters, make many calls and secure the funding.
