By all accounts, the Fire Station #19 Santathon fundraiser was a huge success. If the children’s smiling faces didn’t make it clear, the great turnout in spite of rain and the firemen’s appreciation sure did. We can’t thank the firefighters enough for opening up their “home” to the neighborhood and for all they do for our community. And thanks to the community for coming out to have fun and show support.
We raised nearly $3,000, not a small amount for a first-year event. We’re hoping to continue to raise additional funds for the much-needed repairs and improvements that will preserve this historic fire station. You can browse through shots of the events and donate to the fund at www.station19santathon.com. Your donations are tax deductible.
A special thanks goes out to Catherine Lewis for her amazing coordination skills and dedication, our Fire Station #19 firemen, Santa, Councilman Alex Wan for supporting our neighborhood and fire station, Rich Chey for helping raise funds for Fire Station #19 as well and supporting Santathon and the Virginia-Highland Civic Association. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the incredible volunteers who donated countless hours. Thanks to our generous sponsors again for their support and donations: Osteria 832, George’s, Photography by Alli, Virginia-Highland Civic Association, Virginia-Highland Tour of Homes, Avant Gardener, Fit: To Be, Kroger, San Francisco Coffee and Barefoot Mountain Farms.
Here at Tailfin Marketing we are already looking forward to next year’s event. Can’t wait to see you all there!
