The Fargo Force announced today that the total raised from Cully’s Kids Night on Dec. 15 was just under $22,000.
All money raised from the night was donated back to the Cullen Children’s Foundation, which is a foundation that provides financial resources to organizations that support children's healthcare needs with an emphasis on cancer. The funds were raised through proceeds from ticket sales and chuck-a-puck sales, apparel sales, a blind silent auction and the post-game jersey auction of the team’s specialty Cully’s Kids jerseys. The jersey auction alone brought in just over $18,000 in total.
“The Cullen Children's Foundation could not be more thankful for the incredible partnership we have made with the Fargo Force,” said Foundation Coordinator Kathryn Kingsley. “This year, like every year past, we have been able to raise money that will help kiddos within the FM and surrounding communities. With these funds we will be able to continue financial support, to other non-profits who have a mission and purpose to help children suffering with long term health issues. Our goal is to help make their lives a little easier, more enjoyable, and fill them and their families with hope! Thank you Fargo Force for helping make this possible!”
