Carlisle’s 2013 Fund Raising Finale

Released: 12/17/2013   By: Amanda Lafon, Executive Assistant

The Carlisle companies celebrated the 2013 fund raising effort by holding a finale event. This event was attended by the recipient of the Carlisle companies’ 2013 fund raising effort — Penelope House — represented by Executive Director, Tonie Ann Torrans, the Mayor of Mobile, Sandy Stimpson, and Carlisle staff.

At the event, Donnie and Deborah Carlisle presented Penelope House with a check for $7,500. During the year, the Carlisle staff raised approximately $3,000 from raffles, donations and other special events. An additional $2,000 was raised through “Casting for the Kids” raffle. This raffle was a partnership effort between the Carlisle companies and Penelope House, with prizes donated by local fishing Captain, Bobby Abrascato, custom rod building legend, Ross Hutchisson, and local businessman, Mark Travis. An additional donation was given by Donnie and Deborah Carlisle.

Over the last five years, the Carlisle companies have raised over $27,000 to support local charities. Penelope House was created to provide safety, protection and support to the victims of domestic violence and their children.
