The first bite of a donut in a donut contest you'd think would be enjoyable. When that first bite represents a taste that you then have to anticipate for what you're hoping is 36 more donuts...well, let's just say it was very hard to even enjoy a single bite!
That said, the event was a blast and we raised a total of $9,000+ for The Calidan Missions Foundation. That means that thanks to folks like you the total per donut amount average for the event ended up being $243.
Special thanks to Kaysha, Chi and Danielle on the Texas Capital Team for the extra effort given to make sure this went off without a hitch. Convincing the District Manager of Krispy Kreme to shutdown the inside of a store on a Saturday was no easy task!
and of course......THANK YOU...FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
My goal was 30+ donuts, and it turns out that was James' goal too. The final score actually ended up being 20-17 in favor of James. We were humbled by extreme sugar, but it has now also created a bond between us that very few on the planet earth will ever understand....well, unless you eat 17 or 20 donuts in front of a crowd when after the 4th Donut you both would rather give up. #DonutBros

Details about your fundraiser
The mission of Calidan Missions is to support, protect and provide for widows, orphans and the fatherless in their distress. One of our endeavors, Calidan School, is a fully registered preschool to high school in Lagos State, with over 80 students. In an effort to reach and educate more students, we would like to assist our growing student population with transportation to and from school from their homes, by raising funds to purchase a school bus. This will relieve already stressed caregivers and their children. Pick-ups are available in certain areas. To inquire about pick-ups in your area, text (480) 203-1386.
