RFX | REFE hosted their 1st Annual "Day at the Zoo'' fundraising event at the Houston Zoo on April 29 to drive inclusion and support for the autism community.
The RFX | REFE team, together with the R&R Family of Companies, organized a 50/50 raffle for the zoo event to help raise funds for The XEL Foundation. Our goal was to raise at least $10,000, and we are so proud to say that we exceeded that.
A total of $10,980 was raised from raffle ticket sales. The raffle winner stood the chance to take home 50% of the ticket sales as their prize, with the other half going to The XEL Foundation. The winner, John Krakowski (Vice President of R&R Express), decided to donate his 50% winnings to the foundation, which means that nearly $11,000 has gone toward a great cause.
We’re so blessed and thrilled. Thank you to everyone who bought a raffle ticket and came out to the zoo to show your support. This was an incredible experience for a great cause. We’ll be back next year!
—Nate Lourie, President & CEO at RFX | REFE
