Autism fundraiser nets over $4K for Lafayette County

Mayo — The Third Annual Paddle for Autism held April 26, netted $4,436 to go toward University of Florida Center for Autism and Related Disabilities. The funds are earmarked for use in Lafayette County and were the result of fundraising efforts and raffle ticket sales.

“Thank you to all our business sponsors, local citizen groups, such as the Rotary Club and the Lafayette County Chamber of Commerce, local county and city government sponsors, and the Lafayette County School Board,” said organizer Peggy Grill.

Raffle ticket sales were strong this year, thanks in a large part to the beautiful hand-crafted wooden kayak donated by Debbie and Brady Faulkner of Lakeland, Grill explained.  

“A big thanks to Susie Page and Dan Saethre of the Suwannee River Rendezvous Resort and Campground for hosting our paddle event and providing a venue for the afternoon concert,” Grill said.
