On January 27th Girls Who Grant (GWG) set out on their first Bus Tour of Sanford! Members voted that a portion of the proceeds raised would go to the Corner Cupboard, a non-perishable pantry in Sanford. Tickets were open to the public and $50 each for folks to take a ride on the Bowl-A-Rama Bus through our City with Owen Martin at the wheel giving us some history about Sanford/Springvale. Tickets included a beverage and appetizers at 3 local restaurants; Backstreet Grill, Springvale Public House, and Third Alarm Diner. The tour didn’t stop there, when the bus returned to the Bowl-A-Rama a round of drinks, bowling, and a fully catered meal by Above and Beyond Catering was also included. On February 17th GWG met members of the Corner Cupboard to give their grant of $1,500.
Thank you to all that joined us on the tour and a BIG thank you to the local businesses that donated and/or contributed to make the event a success! For anyone looking for more information on how to donate to the Corner Cupboard please contact Judi Reis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
