“I think that it went well,” Archer said as the class earned a total of $1,046.02 for the Save the Manatee Club Red Tide Emergency Fund. “It was hard to believe how well we did.”
Twelve students from the class were at the breakfast, while others made posters and wrote pieces about the manatee.
“Most of the class served the pancakes while I did raffles and donations and answered questions about the manatees,” Archer said.
“She even got to talk to former Gov. George Pataki and his wife about the fundraiser,” Bridge said. “It was great to get to see the class in a different light.”
Archer said that she already has plans in place for the next Essex Day, which will take her fundraising cause to the other side of the world.
“I think that I want to do something with the Bengal tigers,” she said.
