Team Hannah

Team Hannah – We love and miss you Hannah!

Saturday, March 18 — The TCDS Team Hannah raffle was a HUGE success. We raised $10,000!  The check and more letters to Hannah from school were delivered to Hannah’s mom this afternoon.  

Our sincere thanks to the entire TCDS school community, and to our Tucson community, for coming together to support Hannah.  Your generosity and desire to help was overwhelming.  A special thanks to our school neighbors, Academy of Tucson and Desert Christian, for helping to promote the raffle, and to St. Pius church for your generous support as well as Bahama Buck’s for allowing us to bring our raffle to their store.  Thank you also to the Arizona Daily Star and local TV channels 11 and 13 for running stories about Hannah and the raffle. Many purchases were made online, likely due to the extra publicity.

Raffle winners were drawn Friday by Hannah’s brother Ryder and phone calls were made to all winners.  Click here for a complete list of raffle winners.

While our raffle has ended, Hannah’s family is still in need of financial assistance as Hannah’s mom has been with her in a Phoenix hospital since the middle of February and has been unable to work.  If you would like to help, please consider donating to Hannah’s Go Fund Me account – TeamHannahWay.  You will find it here =>

Thank you again, for your generous support!
