Last year, Marybeth Barrett, daughter of Jim Barrett (owner of Road Scholar Transport) and her husband Mike, conducted their annual Christmas fundraiser to help raise money to buy presents for those children who have been diagnosed with serious illnesses.
Holding not one, but two raffles, Marybeth and Mike were able to raise over $1300.
Working with Cole’s Foundation, they were provided families in need of assistance for the holiday season…families who spent every dime they had on their child’s medical bills and were not able to afford Christmas presents.
This year, Marybeth and Mike hope to raise even more money, and thus, provide more children with presents by having the fundraiser last year round.
Just in time for Easter, Road Scholar Transport will be helping sell raffle tickets for the next fundraiser event.
Tickets cost $2 each or 3 for $5 and can be purchased by:
