Leading as the team captain for her second year, Whitney Williams had a vision of participation whether it be from fundraising or volunteers, she wanted to go all in. With a ton of support from fellow partners that vision became reality. Kevin Wooldridge, Marcia Smith, Sondra Onstead, and Vanessa Caldwell of the corporate office spearheaded fundraising efforts with a pork loin and strawberry cake sale, just in time for the Easter Holiday! With the Quessenberry brothers on the smoker there was no doubt that those pork loins would sell. In total the fundraising efforts raised $1,815.41! We were also able to donate 15 pork loins and several strawberry cakes to the Salvation Army, Children’s Home Inc. of Paragould, and Fisher St. Methodist Church. Sam’s Club of Jonesboro made a very generous donation of half of the sold pork loins; this allowed us to donate a larger amount to Komen! As a last-minute fundraiser, Julia Zumbach and Williams presented the local partners with the “Pink Parking Lot Dash”. This fundraiser raised an additional $501.26 and will add some additional laughs around Brown’s Lane when the dash takes place! In total with online donations the E.C. Barton & Company team was able to contribute an additional $2,386 to our sponsorship!
