Congratulations to our McDougall Family Fund Winners!

Our McDougall Family Fund in 2020 was a big success despite everything that has gone on to begin the year. This year we had over 90 video entries and 44,000 votes, awarding a total of $10,000 to three deserving non-profit organizations.We awarded the top 3 community projects, as voted on by the public, with a combined total of $10,000 to help support their initiatives. We had so many great submissions and are thankful for everyone who participated. Check out this years winners!

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!
