Old Bill’s Donations Due Today

September 13, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments

For those who waited until the last minute to donate to their favorite charity through Old Bill’s Fun Run for Charities, today marks that time. Community Foundation Special Events and Marketing Officer Nicki McDermott says donations must be in hand at the Foundation office by 5:00 tonight in order qualify for the matching funds. McDermott says people can go by the office or go online to oldbills.org and give to as many organizations as they choose with a single check or credit card transaction, and those donations will be matched Mr. & Mrs. Old Bill and the co-challengers.  McDermott says it is not unusual for donations to be made in the last few days of the annual fund-raising event.  She says the Foundation receives about 60% of the annual contributions the week after Old Bills, and she says it appears this year is no different.  McDermott says the money raised will be distributed at the awards party on October 21st, and she adds it will be at that time that the community will know exactly what this year’s matching amount will be for those donations and whether the event has achieved the benchmark of having raised $100-million over its 17-year existence.
