‘Refreshing’ support for Pepsi Refresh grant program
Friday, April 01, 2011
The Oakwood Foundation and the Oakwood Center for Exceptional Families would like to thank everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to vote for the ”All Fun No Limits” playground project through the Pepsi Refresh grant program.
For two months, Oakwood supporters cast their ballots online and through text messages in hopes of securing $50,000 to fund an all-inclusive playscape at the center.
While we were not successful in breaking into the top 10, the Center for Exceptional Families and Oakwood received plenty of positive exposure through the media and new partnerships with local schools and businesses. Our final ranking was 50th out of more than 400 applicants, which shows refreshing support, indeed!
