Julien Project Walkathon Success!

On Wednesday September 11th, Sarah Baker represented the Stone Store at the Julien Project Walk-a-thon Fundraiser.  She raised $190 in pledges, which were matched by Scotia Bank, totaling $380!  The walk was held on the Ignatius Grounds in Guelph, and although there were some threatening thunder clouds, the rain held out for the walkers and it was a beautiful afternoon.

We wish the Julien project all the best in their endeavours supporting marginalized youth through horticultural therapy.  www.thejulienproject.com

The Julien Project

The Stone Store is participating in the Julien Project's annual fall fundraising walkathon through some of the area's most beautiful trails.
The two-hour event kicks off "rain or shine" at 3:30 p.m. Sept. 11 just inside the front entrance to Orchard Park on the Ignatius Jesuit Centre grounds on Guelph's northern fringe
Funds will support the organization's horticultural internship program, which teaches horticultural skills to marginalized youth.
Sarah Baker will be representing the store and if you would like to help sponsor her along with The Stone Store, there will be a sign up sponsorship sheet at the front counter.
