Much like our annual Expo event, due to the cancellation of our Florida Fall Fest that was scheduled to be held this November, we decided to continue in support of a local charity organization. Our team selected the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches (FSYR), an organization that helps improve the lives of at-risk children. The 63-year-old organization, “is credited with helping more than 165,000 children and families in Florida.”

We launched the month-long fundraiser beginning on October 1st and ending on October 30th. Originally, our goal was to raise $6,000. At about the midway point, donations continued to pour in, so we raised our goal to $12,500. We are proud to say, with your contributions, we were able to raise $14,550! Gresco agreed to match the total amount raised, so a total of $29,100 was presented to the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches during our live stream video announcement on Wednesday, November 4th! During the live stream, Florida District Manager, Mark Grant, raffled off a Traeger Grill to our Florida Customers who opted-in to the drawing, and the winner was…Karen Ryan of Lee County Electric Cooperative!

After completing our second fundraiser of this year, we are grateful to be surrounded by men and women who continue to come together in support of great causes and seek to improve our communities. We would like to especially recognize our vendor partners who contributed to our fundraiser – we thank you for rallying with us in support of the FSYR! As always, we look forward to more opportunities like this in the future – working together.
