PRLog - Dec. 20, 2012 - DURHAM, N.C. -- Healing with CAARE, Inc in Durham, NC has received an early Christmas gift in the amount of $2500.  

The money was raised during a Throwback to the 60's fundraising campaign spear-headed by Boomer Diva Nation, BAMedia and its President, Beverly Mahone.  The online campaign began in August 2012 with the Throwback Party event occurring on November 2 at the Healing with CAARE facility.

It was dubbed as a “party with a purpose” says Mahone, who used her expertise as a baby boomer to create the Throwback to the 60's event.  “Even though I was relatively young in the 60s, I grew up with the music because of my parents and thought this would be a great way to raise money by inviting the community in for a night of fun.”

Contributing to the campaign’s success were Jaisun McMillian, a former member of Martha and the Vandellas, who provided a Motown medley and Brian McGuire of McSound Productions, who provided the dance music.

The goal of $2500 was raised, in part, because of Modern Woodmen of America and its local financial representative Nancy Williams.  Mahone says Williams arranged it so Modern Woodmen of America’s Cary branch would match funds raised up to $1250.  
The check was officially presented to CAARE Inc., founder Dr. Sharon Elliott-Bynum on December 20, 2012 at the clinic.  The money will be used to help complete a 15-bed facility to give homeless veterans a place to stay until they can get back on their feet.  

Mahone says they plan to make the Throwback Party an annual fundraising event.  "Next year, the event will be held on November 1 and we'll be throwing back to the 70's," says Mahone.
