Corestar Pilates' fifth annual Thanksgiving Day Sampler a rousing success
The Corestar Pilates' fifth annual Thanksgiving Day Sampler, an exercise program and nonperishable food drive, was a big success, according to event coordinators.
Corestar Pilates – in conjunction with the City of Auburn – organized a two-hour exercise class for the public on Nov. 28 at the Gymnasium at Les Gove Park. Proceeds benefitted the Auburn Food Bank.
"We had almost 60 people attend and raised $1,260 and two barrels of food," said Ruth Stover, owner and operator of Corestar Pilates. "It was a great time. I am thrilled that we were able to reach so many people to encourage them to attend, and in the end help so many with these generous donations."
Participants were asked to make a $10 donation and bring nonperishable food.
The benefit has grown in size and support each year. Stover's studio on Main Street attracted about 15 people and raised under $50 in its first year. The benefit at the new gym brought in more than 40 participants, raising more than $700 and collecting a good bulk of food last year.
