Week 5 experience and PDQ

To start off the week 5  post, we hadn’t had our philanthropy course for almost a month, so we had some extreme catching up to do. Our groups discussed how well the organizations we chose were doing financially by their IRS 990 forms. Luckily, the organization we chose (Quantum House) is stable financially and donates a large majority of the money they receive for their cause.

Yesterday, Monday the 14th, was Healing HeARTs fundraiser at PDQ on Okeechobee Blvd.

For everyone who mentioned “Oxbridge” during the 2 hour period of the night, our group received 10% of the amount raised. Many people came from Oxbridge, along with some other people that we spread the message to about our fundraiser. The fundraiser was for the Quantum House on behalf of our Healing HeARTs group. It was a great night, and we also held two raffles; a gift card raffle and a 50/50 cash raffle too.
