James River Equipment and the Charlotte, North Carolina community raised over $15,000 for Dream On 3. James River Equipment raised funds by raffling off a John Deere ZTrak Mower and hosting a bartending night at the Grapevine Wine Bar in Fort Mill, SC. The lucky winner of the raffle, William George, walked away with a new lawnmower! 100% of the proceeds go to Dream On 3.
