2011 Newspaper Sales
Volunteers and Laurel Run supporters turned out in droves July 6, 2011, for the annual sales of the “Laurel Run” edition of the Observer newspaper.
For the fifth straight year, the Observer printed a special edition of the paper, with articles about this year’s Laurel Run. More than 50 volunteers fanned out across the Northern Chautauqua County area to sell the papers between 6:00 and 9:00 a.m.
Preliminary figures show that more than 1,900 papers were sold, raising some $2,250. After expenses were covered, Laurel Run netted about $1,822.
TRC Foundation and the Laurel Run planning committee extend their gratitude and appreciation to Publisher John D’Agostino and his staff at the Observer for printing the special edition; to our volunteers for waking up early to sell papers; to those businesses and municipalities that allowed us to sell papers at their locations; and of course all those people who bought a paper, especially those who donated money on top of the $1 selling price.
