Over $1100 Raised For Power of Elle!

And all this began with the efforts of one woman; Jennifer Skinsacos. Jennifer is a bartender at Ken's Place, a seafood restaurant in Scarborough, ME. Jennifer offered to donate all her tips from 4-8 PM on Thursday, September 8, to the Fund. That expanded to the whole staff making the same commitment. And then to the owner, Dave Wilcox, making a very generous personal donation.

There were other examples of generosity as well. This is from the Facebook event page, written by Jennifer:

"Thank you to the Carriage House Spa and Salon for the gift certificate as well as personal contributions from the owners and staff. Thank you to Minott's Flowers for the beautiful arrangement of white roses that represented Elle all night on the bar. And thank you to Emily and Beth for putting the gold ribbons together... many people asked for the them and were so proud to wear them! I will be wearing mine all month (September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month)!"
Emily and Beth are Elle's aunt and mother.

This was an amazing example of personal generosity from so many different people. It is also representative of how Elle's life and memory still live on in all of us.

Thank you again to everyone involved for your generosity and kindness.
