Chair Peg Raney says it will take place at the Greene County Community Center in Jefferson tomorrow from 9:30am to 2pm. She talks about the goal that she wants to raise for the total amount of money compared to last year’s amount of over $42,000.
“We found out at a leadership conference that was attended this year, we think if we could get $50,000, that we could be in the top ten nation-wide per capita. And I think that’s a neat way to look at it because everybody has different sizes of communities and counties.”
Plans are made all year round until next year’s event, but Raney adds that it’s the volunteers on the leadership team that make planning for it a smooth process.
“It’s such a rewarding committee to be involved in. I have never worked with a more dedicated and committed group of people who just have the same cause in mind.”
Raccoon Valley Radio’s Big Red Radio will be broadcasting live on KGRA from 9am to noon from the community center.
