All thanks to your efforts! At the last event we donated $17,100 to an amazing charity. In one hour. We want to give a huge thank you to the three speakers of the nominated charities for telling your story: Sara Knight of The Sweet Julia Grace Foundation, Jennifer Marshall of This Is My Brave, Inc., and Annemarie Landry of Woodbridge HUGS (Help Us Grow Strong). Each had an amazing story that left many of us torn over who to vote for. So torn, in fact, that this was the closest vote of all the events so far! In the end, members voted and Annemarie Landry of HUGS claimed the $17,100 prize for an incredible cause. It was one of the most exciting endings we’ve ever had. Her story touched many. We know that HUGS will continue the good fight to keep homeless people off the ground and give them the support they need. Elvis was in the building that night and we’re sure he was smiling down on HUGS. To hear the story behind Elvis, visit impactclub.com to watch the event video.
