WTVM hosts fundraiser with 2nd quarter Give 9 winner The Golden Rule

BUTLER, GA (WTVM) -

We want to send a big thank you to the community of Butler, Georgia who came out this weekend to support The Golden Rule, our second quarter winner of Give 9.

Members of the WTVM family, our Give 9 sponsor Headquarter Nissan, and the community all showed up Saturday for a car wash and yard sale to support The Golden Rule, a local rehabilitation center for women with chemical addiction.

Director Harriet Felts says monies raised through our Give 9 campaign will help the facility continue its mission.

"Money is hard to come by, grants and things are just not out there like they used to, so we try to work hard and do fundraisers and give back to the community who supports us so well too," Felts said.

Lots of people stopped by to say hello, get their cars cleaned and make donations.

Now is the time for you to vote for your favorite charity to win Give 9 for this third quarter. Nearly 16,000 votes have been cast so far this quarter. To nominate and vote for a local charity, click on the Give 9 link.
