Spence Fundraiser Recap

Last Saturday the Spence Garden Fundraiser party hosted at Pearl Street Brewery was a huge success! It was a fun-filled night with music from the Grand Picnic String Band, snacks from Festival Foods, T-Shirt printings from OnThree Printing, and raffle prizes galore!

We’d like to give a huge thank you to everyone who came and supported and donated to the party. The proceeds will go to fund the Harry Spence school garden and will allow students from the school to grow the very food they’ll eat in their cafeteria. GROW is constantly blown away by the kindness and generosity of this community. The support garnered from this event and every event like this will go directly back into the community. We cannot thank you all enough.

A special thank you to Jacqui Marcou and Sherry Beames, two dedicated parents who have spearheaded the Harry Spence garden efforts, including this fundraiser.
