The response to the Challenge has been rapid and generous. As of today, July 12, seven members of the Class of ’64 have given $700! With the $300 from the four challengers, the total donated is $1,000! We on the Promise team are very grateful.
And we humbly say, don’t stop now Class of ’64! The organizers of the birthday party say that they are prepared to take donations at the party.
Class Reunions are back and the Class of 1964 is having a 75th Birthday party!
As a part of this summer’s Reunions 2021, the Three Rivers High School Class of 1964 is having a birthday party on July 31 as they all celebrate their 75th birthday this year. And as part of the celebration, the Three Rivers Promise has received commitments from four members of the class who will each give $75.00 (Happy 75th Birthday!) to the Three Rivers Promise if others in the Class of 1964 make contributions that together total the challenge amount. That’s $300.00 from four donors if the total of other donations from the class is $300. This puts a minimum donation of $600.00 from the Class of 1964 into the Three Rivers Promise.
