Living the Pond Life at Water Garden Expo 2019

Published on June 6, 2019

Lloyd was busy, too. He has been growing out his beard, and he auctioned off the clippers to the highest bidder.

Karrie and Lloyd Lightsey sure were busy getting donations rounded up for the American Cancer Society. Karrie is a cancer survivor, and she puts her heart and soul into fundraising and donating to the cause.

Last fall, Karrie gathered shirts with logos from pond builders and retailers and had them made into a beautiful collage that her sister then sewed together to make a beautiful quilt. Karrie manned the “Living the Pond Life” booth, where she sold tickets for a chance to win it.

On the last afternoon of the Expo, she pulled the winning ticket, and Melissa McCauley of Ponds-N-Lilies was named the winner. $2,000 worth of tickets were sold for the quilt.

Lloyd was busy, too. He has been growing out his beard, and he auctioned off the clippers to the highest bidder. BJ Linger won the honors, and Randy Stewart of Pondliner matched him. Another $1,000 was raised, and now, Lloyd looks like a whole new man!

It was a real eye-opener when Lloyd asked anyone who has had cancer or has known a friend or loved one with cancer to stand up. More than half the room was standing. It’s an awful disease, but these warriors are doing their best to raise money to defeat it. When it was all said and done, a total of $3,000 was raised and donated to the American Cancer Society.
