MILTON — ConAgra Foods Community Partners recently completed a very successful fundraiser and presented a check for $5,600 to support the work of Evangelical Hospice in Lewisburg.
The funds donated were raised through an American Girl Bingo hosted by ConAgra Foods Community Partners at St. Joseph Parish Center, in Milton on Dec. 2. Attendees of the event enjoyed the actual bingo to win American Girl Dolls, a Chinese auction and many different raffles. ConAgra Foods Community Partners also provided food for the participants during the event. In addition to raffles held prior to the bingo, local service clubs donated money to help purchase the dolls and area businesses provided gift certificates for the Chinese auction.
