Council Raises Money For Pools

(Sacramento, CA)
Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Every time Vincene Jones rings the bell, a pool gets a little closer to being full for the summer.  Council members shouted out to Vincene every time someone made a donation.

"We have a donation $10,000!"

Councilmen Darrell Fong and Steve Cohn received most of their donations from businesses, but were stunned by one unexpected donation from 11-year-old Rachel Buller.

BULLER: "I'm donating $655."

COHN/FONG:  "What? You are donate…Wow!"
COHN:   "Thank you! You must be quite a swimmer."
BULLER: Yep.  I have this mistletoe selling business I do in winter because my dad puts up a lot of white lights. And when people come by, they buy hot cocoa and mistletoe that I sell."
With Buller's donation, the council raised about $80,000. 
Save Mart Supermarkets has promised to give a matching donation for every dollar given by the community, up to $500,000.
