Bay Ridge Parents Group Wins $5,000 and Donates All to 11-month-old with Leukemia at Weekend Fundraiser
A local mom group, Bay Ridge Parents, teamed up with parenting resource Mommy Nearest, and announced a $10,000 donation at the Bay Ridge Cares fundraiser event.
The $10,000 was not raised through traditional fundraising efforts. Bay Ridge Parents won $5,000 from the Mommy Nearest Summer Challenge, a competition that encouraged parents to share information in order to win cash prizes for their community. Instead of keeping the prize money, the parenting group donated everything to Sally and Mommy Nearest matched the donation.
All communities should show this kind of support for those in need.
