INGLESIDE - A local fundraiser in Ingleside and Aransas Pass is doing more than just raising money, it's also catching the attention of those who live in town.
It was business as usual for Bill's Auto Supply and Warehouse Tuesday morning in Ingleside, that was until LeAnne Vaillette and Cindy Evans showed up with a purple potty complete with flowers and purple garland.
Peggy and Bobby Dendy were the latest victims to be flushed, but it's all for fun with proceeds from this traveling toilet going to the Curves Cancer Crusaders, a local Relay for Life Team.
"We had read about it online looking for fundraiser and then it just happened that a toilet came my way and I said you know what we are going to do that," says team member LeAnne Vaillette.
So if you get flushed here's what happens, for $25 you can send this beautiful purple toilet to a friend or for $15 you can have it removed. But for $30, you can make sure this purple chamber never returns. The Dendy's instantly knew which option they would choose.
"Oh we will pay the $25, we'll pick somebody," says Peggy Dendy.
And this latrine caught the attention of many of their customers.
"I think it's a good thing. I think it's a good money raiser, for a very very good cause. It's fun," says Dendy.
Vaillette says the potty has already raised $300 in the past week and will continue to travel until the Relay for Life event on April 26th. And while they are trying to keep the toilet local,for the right price, the team says its willing to travel a little further for the cause.
If you would like to "flush someone" call Cindy Evans (361)205-7325 or LeAnne Vaillette 3961)205-0045.
