Children Wash Cars for Brick by Brick

In the true spirit of philanthropy, more than 20 children ranging in age from two to eighteen washed over 30 cars after the Groundbreaking on Saturday, August 30 to raise money to donate to the Brick by Brick fundraiser of George Wythe University.  

Their hard work and entrepreneurial efforts resulted in more than the $300 needed for a personalized brick, which they donated in its entirety to help build the campus where many of them will study and prepare to be statesmen.  Not only did they make some cars sparkle and shine while having lots of fun in the process, each of them has also become a lasting part of the GWU Monticello campus! Their brick will have an honored location on the first building of the Monticello campus for generations to come:

George Wythe University extends a special "thank you" to Laura Bledsoe for her inspired idea, to Diann Jeppson for her seasoned leadership abilities, to the many parents who delayed a long drive home, and especially to the children for their hard work and sacrifice! Than you for helping us build George Wythe University… Brick by Brick!
