Okay, we've got the hats. Let's bring home the rest of the uniforms! They are ordered, but not received, and we still need to pay for them. A new uniform costs almost $600. By June 2016, we had raised $25,000--one-third of the way to paying for our 128 new uniforms. You're right, we have $50,000 to go, so we are still fundraising. Here's our status so far:
1. On June 8th, 2016, we had a drawing for a $500 Amazon gift card, a GoPro HERO4 Silver Action Camera, an Xbox One, a night at the Ritz Carlton, and a group class at Potomac River Running. Students sold $12,300 of tickets individually, and made another $7200 on Blitz Day, selling tickets and playing music throughout the community. Many thanks to our Blitz Day locations.
