WTVM 4/8/13 Editorial: First Give 9 winner of 2013

(WTVM) -

WTVM is proud to announce the first winner in our Give 9 campaign!

With the help of our sponsor Headquarter Nissan, we will award $5,000 every quarter to a local charity.

Our first quarter winner is Animal Ark Rescue of Columbus, which received more than 4,000 votes.

In all, some 16,000 votes were cast for 226 non-profit groups.  

We would like to thank everyone for voting, and urge you to keep 'em coming. We'll award another $5,000 check to the organization that gets the most votes at the end of each quarter this year.

Just go to the Give 9 section on our website to nominate and vote for your favorite 501-c-3 group.

By the way, once you win first place you can't win again that calendar year.

There was also a reward for second place winner East Alabama Humane Society. They received a $500 check courtesy of Jarrod Pest Control.

We congratulate our winners and thank our sponsors and those who voted. WTVM and Give 9 are proud to help local charitable groups continue to do important work in the community.
