Old Bills Fun Run 2013 Yields $9.8-Million For Charities

October 21, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
Old Bill's

It was the highest amount raised by Jackson Hole non-profits and the highest match ever that was announced Monday night at the Old Bills Fun Run Awards evening.  Community Foundation of Jackson Hole President Katharine Conover told the group the community had been challenged to raise $600-thousand more this year than last year which it did, and then some. Conover told the crowd, all told, this year’s event yielded a record-setting $9,809,404. That $9.8 million dollars was achieved by the more than 200 non-profits raising nearly $7.24-million which was then matched by $2.57-million donated by co-challengers and friends of the match.  That means for every dollar raised by Teton County’s non-profits through Old Bills, they realized $1.55.  Conover told the crowd, “We shattered all previous records – the biggest increase in our history.”  She says together with this year’s fundraising, Old Bills has now raised $100 ¾-million in its 17-year history for local charities.
