THE final count resulted in a $20,000 increase in what organisers first thought the Shoalhaven Shark Tank had raised last week.
Last week was the third time the annual Shoalhaven Shark Tank had been run. An early estimate had this year’s fundraiser at about $50,000.
The final count has the community fundraising effort at $72,000.
Shoalhaven Shark Tank brings homelessness support organisations together with businesses prepared to make a donation. This year’s funds take the total over three years to more than $170,000.
This year 24 Shoalhaven businesses signed up to hear 13 homelessness services pitch their goals.
