Give Your Heart to Your Community-15th Annual Valentines Day Event
The Fulton County Community Foundation is once again asking you to “Give Your Heart to Your Community.” The annual Valentines Day fundraiser is a way to send a special gift to your valentine while you give a gift to your community that continues to give year after year.
On Thursday, February 14, guest DJ Don Groenleer will join Tom Bair on WROI FM 92.1 as they send out dedications and song requests. Donors may also choose to have a singing telegram sent to their Valentine. Groups of singers and musicians will be out in the community personally delivering singing telegrams and roses.
2013 marks the third year for “Pal”entines. Palentines are a special greeting from you and your pet. Greetings and pictures from you and your pet will be displayed on Rochester Telephone Company’s Channel 4 and the Community Foundations Facebook page on February 14.
Not only will you be sending your special someone a gift they won’t soon forget, you will also be giving your community a wonderful gift. Donors have the choice of which fund they would like their gift to be used towards, all of which are used to improve the quality of life in Fulton County.
