The group had a goal of beating last year’s record of $545,546.40, and after the final tallies are in they just may have set a new record.
“It takes a while to get everything turned in,” said Molly Marquez, manager of annual development at the Valley Children’s Foundation. “We’ve got everything with the exception of non-Fresno-area schools.”
The annual fundraising event has raised $7.3 million in the last 28 years for Valley Children’s Hospital, which cares for children from 11 counties.
