Nearly $785k collected for Tri-State charities at Walking for Dreams event
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Tri-State non-profits are getting a boost thanks to steps taken in 2021.
This year’s Walking for Dreams event raised nearly $785,000 for 23 local charities during its event in May.
Local matching money was gifted to those charities Thursday.
“Without it - lots of kids, lots of families wouldn’t be able to be taken of in the way that they are,” Event Coordinator Paul Watzlavik said. “So, it directly impacts the ones that need it most.”
This year’s walk featured both in-person and virtual participants.
