Brat sale benefits U.P. Honor Flight
This week’s bouquets go to:
From Gayle DeShambo:
UP Health System Home Care and Hospice, AirMedCare Network, Guardian Flight and UP Honor Flight together raised $3,287 to support upcoming UP Honor Flight mission trips. According to Gayle DeShambo, UP Health System Hospice account executive, 575 brat lunch bags were sold out in one hour and 15 minutes. Because of the outstanding support, we did run out of brats and would like to apologize for those we had to turn away.
“First, we would like to thank everyone who helped make this fundraiser so successful.
Second, we would like to thank all of the volunteers who worked so hard to keep up to the pace of our customer requests during the event. They were amazing. Last but not least, we give many thanks to all those who volunteered to drive deliveries to all of the businesses who purchased brats.
We look forward to hosting this event again in the months to come and welcome every bit of support this amazing community will offer.
