A charity in the Tri-Cities needs your help to win $25,000.
KENNEWICK, WA - A charity in the Tri-Cities needs your help to win $25,000.
The Windermere Foundation Committee in Seattle has selected the Benton Franklin Community Action Committee as one of five finalists for its Charity Challenge in Eastern Washington, Idaho and Montana.
The Tri-City charity will be competing with charities in Wenatchee, Spokane, Coeur d'Alene, and Helena for a gift of $25,000.00 from the Windermere Foundation.
For the Community Action Committee to win, the organization needs your vote. You can vote online every day, now through April 4th, and it takes just a few minutes. Vote on Facebook by clicking here, or on www.Windermeretricities.com.
In addition to the $25,000, Windermere Real Estate-Kennewick is contributing $12,000 to the challenge, which will be divided among seven local charities, even if the Benton Franklin Community Action Committee doesn't win.
If the local group does win however, directors for CAC say they'll give $5,000 to Windermere Kennewick's $12,000 pledge, so the six other local charities can split $17,000, which comes out to about $2,833 each.
The six other charities are Safe Harbor Crisis and Nursery, My Friends Place, Elijah Family Homes, Tri-City Union Gospel Mission, Therapeutic Innovations and Recovery (Ken and Teresa's Place), and the Tri-Cities Diaper Bank.
Windermere-Kennewick submitted the seven local charities for the challenge because they reflected the Windermere Foundation's mission to provide support and services to low-income and homeless families.
