The fundraiser was a huge success! Approximately 250-300 people attended or stopped by the fundraiser to make a donation. Final numbers are still being pulled together, but the goals were far exceeded. Special thanks to all of the neighbors who coordinated the event.
It is because of the dedication and commitment of the local community that we believe we will ultimately be successful. In order to have a successful local business one has to understand the potential customers (1,600+ Signatures in Opposition) and market (Can a Gas Station Survive at 86th & Lafayette Road). The neighbors have made it clear that they will continue to raise awareness and oppose this development for as long as it takes.
