Holly Geraci and Help Holly Help will announce the next challenge on February 24, 2017. The challenge will officially start on March 1, 2017 and will run until March 31, 2017. Similar to past challenges, Mr and Mrs. Geraci will match dollar for dollar the first $10,000 donated.
In 2016, over a period of 3 months, Help Holly Help has helped raise more than $100,000. The first three challenges addressed three different social issues.
The first Help Holly Help grant challenge assisted with hunger and homelessness. The Rockford rescue mission challenge was Holly Geraci and Peter Francis Geraci’s first challenge. The challenge helped raise more than $11,000.
The second challenge was a special one-night only gala challenge. By the end of the challenge, Covenant Enabling Residences received more than $50,000. The second challenge assisted those suffering from developmental disabilities. This specific challenge proved that with planning and spreading the word, a one-night only challenge can produce a lot of money.
Our third challenge, the Alano Club of Lahaina, assisted people who suffered from substance abuse problems. The Alano of Lahaina challenge was a terrific success. Donors were invigorated to do more than just contribute. During the Alano Club of Lahaina challenge, the community sold ornaments and washed cars to raise both money and awareness.
