The 501c3 charity continues to seek funds to purchase a home for women and children in transition. They have set a goal of at least $120,000 and believe they have found a home, which is ideal, located in the heart of Bunnell. Since their “Save The Starfish” Soiree in 2015 and the “Raising The Roof-The Time is NOW” Banquet and Silent Auction in October last year, they have been blessed by many donations pushing them toward their goal.
“Since last year, our building fund has increased to a total of over $93,000, with approximately 75% of this total coming from one anonymous donor,” said Lorraine. “This donation is truly a huge stepping stone for our ministry’s goal of purchasing a home. We are unbelievably blessed!”
