I am very happy to report that we successfully met Jack Taylor’s challenge and raised $500 in private contributions for the Mount Vernon Community School. Jack has agreed to meet these donations dollar-for-dollar, thereby doubling the amount of money raised to $1,000!
These additional contributions bring to nearly $5,000 the amount of revenue we’ve raised through the Big Flea. Given that the actual event is not until April 26, and that we have two garages full of items to sell, surpassing $10,000 in revenue is not a pipe dream. But the only way wwe can do that is with more donations of items to sell.
We appreciate the support of everyone that donated to this fund and donated items to sell. But we are particularly indebted to Jack Taylor for his long-standing generosity not only to the Mount Vernon PTA, but to any number of charitable endeavors in Alexandria.
