Raise The Region underway

SUNBURY — Want to help those who help others?  Raise The Region is underway and you’ve still got time to donate!  The 30 hour fundraiser kicked off at 6:00p.m. Wednesday and continues through 11:59p.m. Thursday.  The fundraiser is sponsored by the First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania, in partnership with Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships.

This is the second year for the online fundraiser that supports nonprofit organizations in Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Snyder, and Union Counties.  Blaise Alexander has donated $125,000 that will be used to stretch donations made to preregistered nonprofits.  Additional monetary prizes will be awarded to participating nonprofits throughout the entire event.

The program was created by the FCFP to help kickoff the yearly fundraising efforts of local nonprofits through the generosity of our sponsors and the community at large.  You can find more details and donate at www.raisetheregion.org.

In 2013, over $834,900 was donated to over 160 nonprofits. You can hear more about the fundraiser during WKOK Sunrise Thursday morning, as Glenn Smith of FCFP will be a guest.  (Codi Jade)
