Local News

CENTRE COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — Centre Foundation’s 10th annual Centre Gives ended last night and raised the most money in the event’s history.

Over $2.2 million were donated to 190 non-profits in this year’s 36 hour event, eclipsing last year’s $2.1 million total.

The Centre Foundation’s executive director thanks the community for the continual growth of the event each year.

“To see everybody’s reaction, and really just to know that all that funding is going to local non profits to support the work that they do, it’s so important for them, so we are really just over the moon,” said Molly Kunkel, Executive Director of the Centre Foundation.

Kunkel adds that there are some last minute prizes that still need to be given out that should push the total to over $2,235,000.
