The Greater Texarkana Young Professionals recently created a Facebook fundraising competition among members to encourage donations to local nonprofits during difficult times due to COVID-19.
Participants raised over $5,000 dollars with Megan Roberts raising the most at $1,300. Her prize was a custom fire pit from a generous donor to acknowledge her efforts in raising the most money individually. Money raised included: Randy Sams — $2,980; Opportunities, Inc. — $700; Texarkana Symphony Orchestra — $680; Northeast Texas CASA — $345; Harvest Texarkana — $290.
GTYP is grateful for everyone that participated and hopes to have similar fundraisers in the near future. If you would like to participate in future contests and fundraisers, follow the Greater Texarkana Young Professionals on Facebook.
