Thank you to everyone who joined us on July 25 for our whale watch fundraiser. It was a sell-out event with more than 110 people aboard to enjoy the sights of orcas and humpbacks in Auke Bay.
Altogether we raised more than $6,000 that will be used as match towards the National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant awarded to the New JACC and the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council.
We also raised an additional $1,000 with the sale of raffle tickets, which are still available. There are three prizes for the drawing: two tickets anywhere Alaska Airlines flies, two 7-day Caribbean cruise tickets on Royal Caribbean and two 7-day Caribbean cruise tickets on Celebrity Cruises. Tickets are $20 each. The drawing will be held during the September 3 First Friday event at 5 p.m.
