Supporters + Harborside Restaurant = Successful Fundraiser
We offer a huge thank you to all who came out last night to support our fundraising event at Graffam Brothers Harborside Restaurant and to the Graffam family, who donated half the value of each check total to Hope Elephants.
We had a full house despite the cold February night with wind chill temperatures in the teens. Of course anticipation of the excellent food Harborside serves likely pushed many undecided people toward Camden.
Dr. Jim enjoyed visiting with people and answering questions, though his enthusiasm is rarely buried far below the surface when it comes to Rosie, Opal, elephant rehabilitation and wildlife conservation.
Fundraising is underway for an indoor educational area and an outside raised viewing platform, and development of a curriculum for use in schools is progressing well.
More information about Hope Elephants is available at its website www.hopeelephants.org and on its Facebook page www.facebook.com/hopeelephants , which can be read without logging into the social website.
Again, thank you to all who participated for your generosity of spirit and action!
Graffam Brothers Harborside Restaurant is reaching out to help small local nonprofit agencies like Hope Elephants by hosting similar events on Tuesday evenings through March. See them on Facebook for the latest information and menu specials.
