The fundraiser is now over. Early this morning the last prize was revealed and at 10:00 am donations were turned off on the GoFundMe page. We broke the goal! The aim was to raise $1000 and we ended up having $1070 donated. Thank you so much to everyone who participated.

The support from our Annapolis Valley community is outstanding to me. This time is a busy time of year and has added financial pressures for us all. Despite that local businesses put up an amazing prize pack to give away, and we had people donate over $1000. Thank you again!

The Chrysalis House is certainly a deserving recipient of the generosity for all the hard, important work they do. As a reminder here is part of what they do 24 hours a day, 365 days a year including these holidays we are in right now.

Chrysalis House is a non-profit grassroots organization that provides shelter, support, counselling, advocacy, and outreach for abused women and their children. Services are available for women who have been psychologically, emotionally, physically, and/or sexually abused. We work with individuals, organizations and businesses in our community to end violence against women. Chrysalis House is located in Kentville, Nova Scotia. We serve the communities of Kings, Annapolis, and Hants County. Public education and community development are also important elements of our Association.

Later today we will get together at the Chrysalis House and find our winner!
