Ava Splashing! 
To our wonderful community:
I would like to send a wholehearted thank you to all of those involved in making Ava’s Community Yard Sale a huge success. We raised over $12,500 in just one day! What an awesome community we live in! 
THANK YOU to all the donors, volunteers and shoppers! A special thank you to our friends, family members and volunteers.  We couldn’t have done it without you! A huge thanks to our sponsors for their generous donations: Garr’s Rental and Feed, Publix, Kroger, Peebles, Dollar General, The Yankee Candle Company, The Greenhill Women’s Club, Jennifer and David Lagadinos,  Girl Scout Troop 1352,  David Bennett of Clyde's Delicious Donuts, It’s My Turn Consignment, Looking Glass Consignment, Billy Crips with Digitec, and Jenny Faulk with Kona Ice. I would also like to thank the local media outlets for running our story, as it is key in our fundraising efforts! 
The items not sold were donated to the Wilson County Help Center, Wilson County Schools, Light House Christian School, Mt. Juliet Help Center, Brooks House, Goodwill, Girl Scouts, and Brandon and April Smith to aid in their fundraising efforts to adopt their 2 little boys. It warms our hearts to see so many benefiting from this sale. 
Jim and I personally want to send our heartfelt thanks to everyone for all of their love, kindness, and support over the last several months.  It's been hard adjusting to life without our sweet Ava.  She was and still is our cherished little girl.  She filled our hearts with love and brought so many smiles to our faces.  We genuinely thank you for helping in our fundraising efforts to build a splash pad in memory of Ava at Charlie Daniel’s Park. She will always be a part of our lives and our hope is that her memory will live on in this wonderful community as well. Stay tuned for more fundraising opportunities for Ava’s Splash Pad. We have a ways to go to meet our goal! 
Jim and Krista Bright (Ava’s mommy and daddy)
