Since their recent participation in the SunriseWALKS! event, The Bristal Helping Hands community volunteers in Lynbrook decided that they would host a fundraiser for Sunrise Day Camp. The community joined together to come up with some fantastic ideas. Reflections residents spent time tie-dying tee shirts and socks, as well as making beaded necklaces and bracelets to sell. The community also put a ‘lollipop tree’ in the lobby so that any visitor in the weeks leading up to the event could donate to the cause. The day of the event, there were raffles, prize baskets, hot dogs and desserts. They also had a lemonade stand, a DJ, dancing, arts and crafts, a face painter and a balloon artist. Residents, family and friends were all invited to come by and support the cause. It truly was an incredible show of teamwork and generosity from everyone involved.
The Bristal Helping Hands in Lynbrook are proud to report that they raised $2,079.00!
All of the money will be donated to Sunrise Day Camp. Here are some photos from the team’s impressive effort:
