Final Tally Yields Even Bigger Total for Red Cross Fundraiser
Final tally for the big Red Cross fundraiser last month has come in. Even a little bigger than the previous eye-popping total of $80 thousand for Dancing With the La Crosse Stars. After counting up the last of the checks, the Red Cross says the event raised just shy of 84 thousand dollars. That's money the local Red Cross will use, among other things, to help families cope with the aftermath of tragedies like home fires. One of the dancing couples in this year's contest raised over 17 thousand dollars. Four couples in all raised over ten thousand dollars. This year's final tally dwarfs last year's total of just under fifty thousand.
