United Way of Southeast Alaska and our partner agencies offer a huge thank you to the great folks at The Mendenhall Auto Center for their recently completed Gingerbread Invitational Challenge. The concept was developed by the team at Mendenhall Auto Center where local businesses battled it out holiday style while making gingerbread creations that earned money for their chosen nonprofit organizations.
Some great Gingerbread projects were built over the weekend of Dec. 8 at Mendenhall Auto Center. The grand prize of $2,500 was awarded to Hospice and Home Care. Donations by individuals visiting the displays and voting with their contributions as well as the revenue from creations that were auctioned off on Dec. 19 raised more than $11,000 for the 10 participating agencies.
On behalf of United Way, our partner agencies and all the organizations that benefited from the funds raised, thank you to the supporting businesses and the great crew at Mendenhall Auto Center. Steve Allwine, Mark Troupin, Karla Allwine, Steven Allwine II and Tim Lombard did an awesome job and it is truly appreciated.
United We Win!
