By  | 

BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Some Bay County educators got a nice surprise Wednesday at Arnold High School. Several local teachers walked away with $500 Visa gift cards.

Scenic Sotheby's International Realty raised $10,000 with the help of the 30A 10k and decided to give the money to teachers affected by Hurricane Michael to help them with recovery efforts.

"It's so amazing to be able to see their faces and what the money can do for them," said Scenic Sotheby's International Realty COO Wes Madden. "It's not just the money and what they can do with that. I think it's just them realizing that they're not forgotten."

Madden said they're still trying to raise money for other local teachers.
