Does it get any better than this?
To make our community campaign end on an even happier note, the 1st place winner donated $1000 of their prize money to the 2nd place project because they thought it was such a great initiative. The two projects battled back and forth for the lead throughout the full duration of the voting round. Soper Creek Wildlife Rescue explained that by donating $1000 to the Crystal Bay School Council they would both receive $4000 and both would be considered the winners! Such a sweet gesture and this is why we love supporting our communities!
Thank you to everyone who participated and made this years McDougall Family Fund contest such a success. See you again next year!
