And the Winner Is…
Congratulations to the big winner, Sherry Kennedy, of North Carolina!
In December 2011, PS Charities hosted the first of many fundraising events to build a house for a wounded Marine and his family. Just before wrapping up that first event we received an unexpected donation—A custom built OCC Chopper! Here at PSC, we are fortunate to have many kind and generous donors but this guy takes the cake, giving us a valued toy from his own collection.
Thanks to the donation, PSC was able to raise an additional $40,000 from raffle ticket sales for the house, through several fundraising and marketing opportunities:
• Set up shop at Washington DC’s premier Harley-Davidson dealership during the Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Rally. Thanks Patriot Harley-Davidson!
• Transported the Chopper between Virginia and North Carolina. Thanks to our friends in North Carolina who were critical in helping us reach our fundraising goal!
• Partnered with supportive businesses in the DC area. Robbins-Gioia let us bring the bike to their offices and show it off.
• Sold tickets online using our website and social media. We had purchases from 34 states!
• Partnered with a local cigar club during a scotch tasting. Not a bad way to spend the evening for a great cause. Thanks, CXIII Rex.
• Partnered with a philanthropic motorcycle club and raffle it at their annual anniversary party. Thanks Tuckahoe’s!
Together with the Brothers in Arms Foundation, PSC purchased and closed on a lot in June, where groundbreaking is slated to begin later this Fall.
PS Charities wishes to sincerely thank all our donors, volunteers, and staff for their hard work and dedication. Our success is not possible without your tireless support!
