Three cheers to Evalena Leedy, founder of Yoga Sole, and all its members for not only meeting its target fund-raising goal, but surpassing it.
The good-hearted folks held a picnic brunch at Prospect Park on July 30 to raise funds and awareness to protect the Costa Rican rainforest was and the Oso Peninsula through the White Hawk Foundation.
And thanks to the support of an amazing community, the group raised more than $5,700. Along with Yoga Sole’s matched grant amount of $5,000, it brought the total to $10,700.
Evalena said it “was an unbelievable success.”
In the past three years, Yoga Sole has raised more than $55,000 to support the cause.
