Today was the Allen Tate Fundraiser day, called FUNDay. It takes place at The Pointe in Mooresville, on Lake Norman. BEAUTIFUL location!! All money raised is divided between the offices and has to go to a charity that supports our local public schools-- our money in Rock Hill supports Back the Pack. With the rain, everything was moved indoors, but some of the activities we could take part in were the casino, Bunco, Velcro wall, karaoke, cornhole competition, etc. We also had a competition for our "tailgating", which was actually moved indoors. Here's a photo of most of the group that showed up from the Rock Hill office.
Alyn Sheheen and I were co-chairs of the Rock Hill office for FUNDay. We collected about $4000 in items for the silent auction; don't have totals yet of what was actually raised, but I thought it was important to give props to those companies in our community who contributed to our silent auction items... Please support these companies if you're able to!
