March added another $7,693 to private funding, bringing the three-month total to $36,797, or 34% of the annual goal.
The biggest boost came from sponsorships, donations, and ticket sales for Tee Time at the Library, which raised more than $10K!
Thank you to everyone who came out to support this special event, as well as the generous sponsors and hard-working volunteers who made it possible.
Special thanks also to Mr. Shreck and his Shoemaker Elementary art students for the creative hole decorations.
Donations from individuals and organizations — including the Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center, with whom we recently partnered on a mammogram-awareness webinar supported by a grant — added to the March results. Book Nook sales, fines, fees, and printing revenue rounded out the list.
