“They raised exactly $1,091.35,” said Jenny Davis, mother of Alli, 13, and Abby, 10. “They saw the camp video online and decided to take it on.”
Davis explained she’s a Zac Brown Band fan, and the family has a close friend with a handicapped daughter who inspires their efforts. “I have raised some money for the camp before, but they did this all on their own.”
The girls started fundraising in May, Davis said, and had a car wash, made and sold pins, and held a pool party at their community pool. They got the use of the pool donated, David explained, and then asked partygoers for contributions.
As they collected funds, “they put the money in a dream jar.” Davis, who hails from Lisbon, Ohio, donated the money while in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania to attend the band’s July 15 show. “I just donated it today,” she said excitedly.
Davis said next on her industrious and generous daughters’ list is actually going to the camp to volunteer. “They want to go down there and work with the kids,” she said, “I am very, very proud of them.”
