Another Successful Fundraiser for Power of Elle / More Funding From Power of Elle

It has been a busy summer/early fall for the Fund.

First, some very good news. The Tea for Two Dolly & Me Tea Party held on September 15 raised $1650.62 for the Fund, an increase of almost $200 over last year's event. Sandy Mekonis has our everlasting thanks and gratitude for organizing this event.

And it is because of events like these and donations from so many generous people that we are able to give back.

We recently once again sponsored the 1km fun run called "The Elle Dash" with a $300 donation at the Hugs From Hayley Race for Maine Children's Cancer. Hugs from Hayley is another wonderful organization worthy of your support. You can learn more about them here. We consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to work with them every year.

The Fund donated $100 to the Fairfield School in Saco (where Elle attended kindergarten) for their Walk-a-Thon.

And the Fund gave $407 to the Saco Parks and Recreation Department to help buy two bikes for their Saco Bikes for Kids program. These bikes will be used by children in the town's park and rec program.

Again, it is because of the generosity and kindness from all of you that the Fund is able to give this money to so many different and worthy causes. And we cannot thank you enough for it.
