The Cannon Falls Education Foundation (CFEF) raised $3,740 from 82 donors on "Give to the Max" day on November 16. It was the group's first year participating in the on-line fundraising activity organized by GiveMN.org said Laura Qualey, CFEF public relations chairperson.
"We were very pleased; it was pretty good for our first year," said Qualey. The CFEF just missed a $1,000 bonus from GiveMN by finishing in 33rd place in number of donors of all state organizations taking part in the event. To honor Minnesota's place as 32nd state in the Union, the 32nd place organization got a bonus.
