The Weogufka Center hosted another successful annual Mule Day with mules, vendors, food, activities, and more, with the organization using proceeds from the event to go towards a gym roof.
People came from near and far to enjoy the day’s festivities, with visitors coming from Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, New York, Mississippi, Texas, New Jersey, and Louisiana to enjoy the day.
The Weogufka Center needs $88,000 to replace the roof on the old gymnasium, but the organization was pleased to report that through the recent Mule Day more than $13,000 was raised to go towards that project.
Numerous individuals donated cakes for the cake auction, which proved to be a big success. The Weogufka Center thanks Keith Dennis for his support each year in being the group’s auctioneer.
During the cake auction the Weogufka Center also held a raffle with cash prizes, with raffle tickets being available for $1 each.
The prizes included a grand prize of $300, a second place prize of $200 and a third place prize of $100. The Weogufka Center thanks all who participated, and the winners announced were Randy Glenn with the grand prize, Samantha Williams for second place and Portia Miller for third place.
In addition to the mules being a large crowd pleaser as usual, this year the Farm to Table children’s center was even “bigger and better than ever,” according to Gay Adams with the Weogufka Center.
The Weogufka Center would like to extend its gratitude and appreciation to all those who came out in support of the event and helping the center in its efforts to get a roof on the gym, as well as all of the volunteers who help make the event possible.
