$6,000 in Annual Community Fundraiser

iPads and more, according to a news release
from the company.
Tickets are sold to employees and their
families, and winners are announced the
day of the event each fall. This year, local TV
personality Lucas McFadden of CN2 emceed
the prize pull and announced the winners.
"Without the generosity of so many
community partners, Spinning Wheels
would not be possible. We are extremely
grateful to all those who contribute and
participate," said Michelle DiEduardo,
Spinning Wheels Committee chair.
The funds allowed Williams & Fudge to
purchase approximately 130 bikes to donate
to the Toys for Happiness program through
the United Way's Holiday Partnership.
