$133,000 Raised for Cystic Fibrosis
The 11th annual Emerald Eve raised a record $133,00 for local cystic fibrosis patients.
The event, with 350 guests at the Canfield Casino in Saratoga Springs, was through the Donna M. Crandall Memorial Foundation.
The organization donates items to families directly and gives funding for supplies for area hospitals. I wrote about them last year for The Record
and last month for 105.7 Crush FM's site
Since its inception more than a decade ago, the foundation has raised $1.3 million for cystic fibrosis. The Emerald Eve event usually raises $100,000 but it has grown, despite the economy, over the years.
In another charity announcement update
, Otto Cadillac has partnered with the Village of Colonie Outreach Center in their promotion to give away a car to a nominated Colonie family once the business' Facebook page
gets 2,000 likes. The dealer has about 250 likes now.
