Thank you for your generous donation in support of the Gillis Foundation.  We raised our goal of $10,000 for the Periwinkle Foundation and $32,800 for the Gillis Foundation.  The money for the Gillis Foundation will be used to fund our 2016 projects.  Our ticket sales were $10,000 and the rest of the money was raised from donations alone!  We are so grateful for the overwhelming support.

The following is a list of the projects that your money will help fund:

Providing Christmas toys for children who are hospitalized with life threatening illnesses;

  • Sending supplies to our Texas Military troops serving overseas;

  • Assisting domestic violence victims and their children who are currently in women’s shelters with Easter baskets and Christmas toys, as well as holiday meals; and

  • Providing food, veterinary care and supplies for local animal shelters.

With your assistance we are able to continue to work hard to provide these services to many deserving charities in our area.  Again, thank you so much for your support of our work and our efforts.
