Heritage Ranch holding online fundraiser
Heritage Ranch normally holds an annual gala that raises one-quarter of its annual working funds. Because of COVID-19, the gala has been pushed to March. In its place, the group is hosting a virtual fundraiser with a goal of $34,485 raised by Oct. 1.
It is asking people to consider what they have spent on gala tickets and activities and donate the cash directly. Ways to donate include making a donation at www.hrbr.org/give or www.facebook.com/donate/566897307884260. People can also buy a raffle ticket for $20 for a chance to win a cypress porch swing from The Corbel in St. Francisville. Link is at www.hrbr.org/heritagegala.
