We received a sweet thank you note from the folks involved in the White Rock Home Tour, letting us know that roughly 1,500 people attended and almost $24,000 was raised for Hexter Elementary.

We love sponsoring such great local events, especially those like this one, which exist to give back to neighborhood schools, nonprofits and causes. Congrats to the Hexter PTA, which worked so hard to make it happen.
