Chambers, Greg
When it comes to fundraising, it’s all about the Well, it’s mostly about the money. Elements of fun, camaraderie, and good publicity also factor into a fundraiser’s total net value. This approach helps us raise the funds we need to conduct life-changing service projects in the Middle Peninsula.
