Our season had so many wonderful activities and moments that many of our guest were able to enjoy and contribute towards. One of the most rewarding our activities is our guest coordinated fundraising effort that took place throughout the season, “Paradise Cares”. It is with great honor and pride that we commend our guest for their successful campaign. Wow – what a special and generous community to be a part of!
Through the heartfelt contributions collected through the purchase of raffle tickets, super bowl squares, poker run cards, chili cook-off tickets, margaritas, donated raffle prizes, baked potatoes, pig roast tickets, countless volunteer hours, donations and one huge anonymous guest donation of $1,000, a total of $11,214.39 was raised. The proud owners of Paradise Oaks, Greg and Yvonne Mixon have graciously honored their financial commitment of matching every dollar up to $10,000.
With this match and the generous efforts of our guest, the grand total raised for the 2019-20 season towards “Paradise Cares” is $21,214.39.
These contributions made in the name of “Paradise Cares” will be split between the local Bushnell, Florida charities, Wreaths Across America, Tunnel to Towers Foundation and the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Benevolent Fund.
The “Paradise Cares” committee and the volunteers who donated their time and energy during all of these events deserve our deepest gratitude and heartfelt appreciation. We have so much to be thankful for during this unprecedented and troubling time, but can remain beyond proud of the generosity and love that Paradise Oaks residents and owners continually display. #ParadiseCares #LoveourGuest #ParadiseIsSpecial!”
