All materials were supplied by Stine Lumber and Gabriel Building Supply.
“We are extremely grateful to all our partners that helped make this project an overwhelming success.” noted Rob Carlisle, CEO Child Advocacy Services.”Anytime we can invite others from the community to participate in our work for children and produce outstanding results like this, our children win. It shows our community that children come first.”
More than 2,100 tickets were sold for this event. The overall event was the most successful ever.
“This year was the first year we have been able to build two different playhouses and feature them in different communities we serve” said Carlisle. “Each raffle ticket generously helps us provide services to children in our community. I am thankful to each person who took a chance. Thank you. We are excited that this will grow and others will be interested in joining this extraordinary project next year.”
