$100k? Zippity Yay!
Wednesday, May 22nd, we made history. We handed Friends of Children's Hospital a check - for $100,000. That's a record donation because of people like you. In the three year history of Fondren's Zippity Doo Dah® Weekend, this is the most money that we have ever raised.
It's kind of funny how it all came together - the final amount at least! Read a feature story here from Find It In Fondren.
A very special thanks to each and every person who put even one ounce of time, energy, talent or resources into this year's event. You truly are a special group of people and we could never say thanks enough. We appreciate you, but moreover, the children and families of Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children thank you.
