Raising Rochester


Raising RochesterGA_movieposter_4_8_15 The Linda Rea Team recently made a donation to Raising Rochester. What is Raising Rochester, you may ask? Raising Rochester is an organic, volunteer, multi-community garden program with produce donated to children and others at greatest need. These Urban Gardens produce Healthy Harvests to Help Those In Need. The founder of Raising Rochester is Dr. Jay Mitchell of Rochester, Michigan. You can find a booth set up at the Rochester Farmer’s Market on Saturdays in downtown Rochester, which gives you a wealth of information about the program. They have many schools participating in the urban gardens and hope to get more on board as time goes on. The Linda Rea Team was lucky enough to attend one of their fundraisers sponsored by Guardian Cemetery in Oakland Township and invited many of their clients. This fundraiser was their Third Annual “Cinema in The Cemetery” with a special showing of a family movie “The Goonies”. All proceeds from the fundraiser were matched by Guardian Cemetery. What a fun evening under the stars, watching The Goonies on a huge outdoor movie screen, eating yummy popcorn and candy. Fun was had by all!
