Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - It was a record year in terms of cherries and cash for Cherries for Charity.
The 31st annual event ran this past July and saw 48 tons of cherries sold for charity at the six F-M Hornbacher’s locations.
The grocer and the Fargo-Moorhead Cosmopolitan Club donated $50,000 as a result.
The donation was evenly split between the YWCA of Cass County and the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center.
Erin Prochnow- Cass County YWCA Executive Director: "The $25,000 that the YWCA will receive because of their efforts represents $1 for every night of shelter we provided back in 2012."
Cherries for Charities has given $339,000 to the two organizations since its inception.
