I'd once again like to thank everyone who supported our group in the Pepsi contest. The first half of our grant, $5,000 was delivered in July, and I just began purchasing the costumes with it. We do not get the second half until I write a mid-term report and submit all receipts showing I purchased the same items that I had budgeted for. I won't post pictures of our costumes until they make their debut in the near future...Thanks to the following Portage businesses for sending votes our way:
YMCA, Aurelio's Pizza, Buffalo Wild Wings, Portage Chamber of Commerce, El Cantarito, Leo Hatch Realty, Dairy Queen, Ma's Li'l Champs, Portage Administration Building, Portage Township Schools. Thanks also to El Salto in Valparaiso.
Special thanks to Munster resident Giovanni S. for his votes and donation of 75 bottles of Pepsi (contained Power Votes) and to Supermercado Ortega in Hammond for having customers send a free text vote as they were paying for their purchase.
