We have a winner! Winnie the Pooh and friends (Jimmy Whaley and Hannah Ricketts Pitts) received the most votes in our “Bring a Book to Life” fundraiser.
Thank you to all of our wonderful contestants, and to so many from this community and beyond who voted/donated to support these amazing contestants and this worthwhile cause. Together we raised over $11,000 – all of which will be used to purchase and mail awesome, age-appropriate books (and parent resources) to children in Sumter County, Georgia. We firmly believe that “A child’s path to a brighter future is paved with books.”
