Fundraising dinner sets new record (Mon, 2017-06-12) Great results due to so many donors and volunteers - thank you!

GardenShare's annual fundraising dinner and auction was held on June 6, 2017 and was a record-setting event for the organization. The combination of business sponsorships, ticket sales, a silent auction, and a drawing netted a total of $9,718 to support GardenShare’s anti-hunger and local food work in St. Lawrence County. This is a new record amount for this eighth annual event. For comparison, last year’s event raised $5,783. All of us at GardenShare are so grateful to everyone who helped make this event so successful!
