Fundraiser success!!!
Supporters of Lights Out, Green In came out in droves to help raise money for the all-volunteer nonprofit on May 15. The bowling fundraiser at Town Hall Lanes in Johnston, RI, raised more than $1,000 for LOGI, which will use the money to help distribute energy-saving bulbs to low-income residents in Rhode Island through a partnership with National Grid and the R.I. Food Bank. Lights Out, Green In raised hundreds of dollars through its silent auction. Companies that donated items include Mohegan Sun, the RI Philharmonic, Providence Bruins, Pawtucket Red Sox, Swarovski, Providence College, Gamm Theatre, Seven Stars Bakery, Boston Celtics and the Boston Red Sox. LOGI would like to thank all of the companies as well as all of our supporters. Be on the lookout for more fundraisers in the future. Check out video highlights from the event here.
