Saturday, May 5, City Fitness Gym hosted our annual Fitness Fiesta Fundraiser for Girls On The Run-DC. We raised more than $2300 through our raffle ticket sales, and would not have been able to do this without the amazing and continuous support of Cleveland Park merchants. Their generous donations helped to make this a successful event, once again.
We would like to thank the following:
All Fired Up!
Brothers Sew & Vac
Cleveland Park Valet Dry Cleaning
Cleveland Park Fine Wine & Spirits
European Wax Center
Wake Up Little Suzie
This is what makes Cleveland Park our little village in the city!
Special thanks as well to all of our loyal members whose donations through raffle purchases especially made it possible. Best of all, together we have made an important contribution to a great organization. After receiving our donation, I received this response from Kelly Makimaa, development manager from Girls on the Run DC:
“I am truly honored by your kindness for the girls in our community and the amazing generosity of your members. You’re giving girls gifts that will last a lifetime — care, confidence, character, and contribution back to their communities. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your gift will help 7 more girls who otherwise might not be able to participate in the program. Just imagine, these 7 girls’ smiles below are because of YOU. “
