Thanks for Helping the Waterstrats

I recently organized and held a benefit spaghetti dinner at the Elks Lodge in Franklin to raise funds for my neighbors, Steve and Cindy Waterstrat and their sons Kyle and Corey Wiley. This family lost their home and all of their belongings on February 28 due to a fire that originated in a recently-cleaned chimney.

I was able to raise funds for this family. I am still receiving donations and will continue to collect for this family. The dinner was a great success. Lots of friends, neighbors, and family came out to support this wonderful event.

I would not have been able to do any of this without the help from all of you. Some donated their time, some helped from the first steps. And others donated items to be raffled off. This letter is a huge and warmest thank you from the bottom of my heart. Without you all, this event would not have made it from start to finish.

You or your company donated raffle items that encouraged all attendees to purchase raffle tickets. This was a major fundraising event. We had over 50 items to be raffled off. Thank you for your donation, your time, and your thoughts for this family.

With the warmest regards,

Megan Sweeney
