As a jockey at the Carousel Derby, Deborah Stamps, EdD, SVP, Quality, Safety and Innovation, raised an amazing $1,128 for the Pirate Toy Fund.
Among the other jockeys, Deborah came in third place, but at an event like this, everyone came in first. Altogether the Carousel Derby at Eastview Mall raised over $8,700, which is $3,700 more than the amount raised last year.
Thank you, Deborah, for continuing to impact our community in fun and inviting ways!
