Thank You For Loving Your Co-op FUNdraiser

Were you at last week's Love Your Co-op FUNdraiser? If you were you know it was a HUGE success - live music, great prizes, and an outpouring of cooperative spirit. And did I mention that the event helped to raise over $3600 toward opening Richmond's only member-owned grocery store? An event this good requires a few words of thanks, so here they are:

  • Thank you to Emily Ellingsworth & Anna Meshejian for being decor goddesses and creating such a beautiful space with their artistic and crafty skills
