We cannot even begin to express how grateful we are with how everything went on Saturday at Ansley's One in a Million Benefit hunt at Grassy Branch Fox Preserve. Over $23,000.00 was raised Saturday and it couldn't have been possible without everyone involved.
On behalf of the Ashburn family:
"From the Ashburn Family:
we cannot express how grateful we are to everyone for everything, we were blessed to raise $23,011 at the Ansley’s one in a million-benefit hunt.
we would like to say a special thanks to Bobby & Mary Susie Patterson and family for all they did to contribute to making Saturday a success!
Everyone who donated monies, the list is extremely long, just know we are so grateful. Ansley has touched so many people the list would be a mile long. If you would like to donate to the family message me and I will get you their information!
Thank you to the Honeycutt family for taking the time to drive down from Chapel Hill and jump in whole heartedly! I know any second away from Ansley right now is so hard! Thank you for allowing our family (hound and otherwise) to show our love and support for yours! Please continue to pray for Ansley and her family.
To my tribe, THANK YOU, y’all have shown love and support from coast to coast! The people in our corner are so amazing! We love you all!
