We wanted to find a couple that could really use a date night to themselves. The Homegrown Hospitality Group and Atom Tickets teamed with us to send one lucky couple to dinner and a movie and we'll even cover the baby sitter!
After looking through the submissions, one stuck out to us. It was from Kristina Russell of Summerville.
This is her story:
"A little more than a year ago, I was forced out of my job as a 16 year dispatcher for police, fire and EMS due to PTSD. I had not been able to find work since . I finally have been able to get a job as a personal assistant but things are still so tight. Every penny goes to bills and doesn't leave a lot of room for anything fun. My husband is a police officer who is working himself into a stress breakdown to keep things afloat. Any bit of kindness would be unbelievably meaningful. Thank you for your consideration and for doing this wonderful thing for our community."
