Vermont fund-raiser nets $4,000

By Jim Stanford on September 27, 2011


These tees were a big hit.

Last week’s JH4VT benefit party raised nearly $4,000 for Vermont residents and businesses affected by Hurricane Irene.

The money will help people along Route 4, an area especially devastated by the storm.

“Jackson is truly an amazing community that pulls together whenever others need it,” said Don Watkins, one of the organizers.

The strong turnout was not surprising, given that roughly 33 percent of all Jackson Hole residents attended Middlebury College.

Friends of the 802 will continue to accept donations online.
