The GCE Celebrates Its First Birthday!

The GCE Celebrates Its First Birthday!

January 2, 2014 0 By Steph Mernagh

On January 31st, the GCE team will be celebrating the site’s first anniversary with a party that gives back to our community. Help us be superheroes for those in need!

Although January 3rd is our official anniversary, we figured we would wait until everyone was finished with their holidays to get the party started! It’s a good thing we did too, because we’ve gotten a foot of snow today in less than 24 hours…

We didn’t want to make this party just about us. In fact, it’s not about us at all. It’s about our community, and everyone in it that has supported us and shown us that we can do whatever we put our minds to. The advice and support we’ve received as a team over the past year has been absolutely overwhelming and we can’t begin to tell you all how thankful we are.

So, we decided to make our party about giving back to the community that’s treated us so well. The charity we’ve chosen is called Community Care; an organization that distributes more than 4,000 pounds of food per day and assists over 1,800 needy families. Having volunteered time with them in the past, I know that after the holidays, the shelves become bare and there is a lot of pressure on the charity to restock them.

This year we are holding our party in hopes that we will raise enough money so that Community Care doesn’t have to worry about where their next donations will come from. Our goal is $500. Even if you can’t make it to the party or even live in another part of the world, we are asking that you consider buying a ticket from us. Not only will you be helping a charity in need, but you’ll also be entered to win a new Kindle eReader!

All of our proceeds from the party go to Community Care, from ticket costs to a raffle we will be holding during the event.
