reps Michael and Brian turned over the big check to Helpline House yesterday. Thanks to everyone who supported Gobblefest Bainbridge 2021!!!! I also sent $3k to NW Harvest earlier this week so Gobs raised a total of $13,860 for local food charities in 2021! Why is there such a difference in the amounts…a couple of reasons. First, Michael Wright is the absolute champion of getting sponsorships and company matching funds for donations. That makes a HUGE difference….something we need to do in Kirkland going forward. In addition, Helpline House really gets involved in promoting the event and having their volunteers work the event…. again, something we have been lacking in Kirkland. We’ll dial it in for 2022!
