GREENE – Floodfest-Greene was an incredible success due to a huge outpouring of support from members of the community, said event coordinator Wess Van Voorhis.
“I couldn’t be more proud of everyone who participated,” he said to the gathered crowd at the Genegantslet Golf Club on Sunday. According to preliminary figures, the event itself raised more than $11,000 which does not include the nearly $7,000 donated by businesses and individuals prior to Sunday.
In addition, attendees filled four tables with non-perishable food items, children’s clothing, and Christmas decorations which will be distributed to families affected by Tropical Storm Lee and the resulting catastrophic floods.
Voorhis said the event would not have been such a success without the help of numerous community members who donated their time and energy.
