The organizers of WyoBraskaGives had a $200,000 goal for today but a major donation of $147,500 has pushed them far past that goal.
Co-Chair Becky Horne said the anonymous donation to the Regional West Medical Center Foundation is the “perfect example that giving is contagious” and “we are just happy for them”.
Horne says even with the large donation, virtually all of the over 100 non-profits are receiving money today. Many of the donations are relatively small, which means the giving is coming from people who have not donated before, which is a major goal of the 24 hour fundraising effort.
With the large donation, the overall total is climbing to reach the $300,000 mark later today.
There is also a silent auction you can click to on the home page and donate that way.
