The Turkeyfoot Benefit Crew reported another record-setting year, raising an additional $10,000 over last year for a total of $43,000 from its two main fundraisers in 2012.
Spokesperson Sonya Gorkowski said, “We had a wonderful year this year. We donated $3,000 to the Shriners and $10,000 each to Caring Hearts in Bellefontaine, Tri-County Hospice in Wapakoneta, Hardin County Hospice in Kenton and The Wilson Memorial Foundation in Sidney.
