The numbers are not official, but preliminary estimates show that this past weekend’s Turkeython on AM 1160 WCCS raised around $34,000. Each year, the fundraiser collects money for the United Way and its 15 member agencies.
Turkeys and food certificates are donated by grocers in the Indiana County area and additional certificates and turkeys are purchased through monetary grants from WyoTech and the owners of the Philadelphia Street Apartments.
The food certificates and turkeys are then distributed by ICCAP and the Salvation Army. Oldies Attic host Bill Otto says final figures should be available later today.
