Go Big Give raises $80,000 for Hamilton County

The annual Go Big Give fund raising campaign May 3 reached its intended goal during the 24-hour donation period in Hall, Hamilton, Howard and Merrick counties.
“We were thrilled about the results of the day, we were hoping to hit half a million and we exceeded that goal,” said CEO of the Grand Island Community Foundation and local Aurora resident Tammy Morris.
As Morris said, the totals for the campaign reached over $510,000, which she added was similar to last year’s total. When it comes to the amount Aurora and Hamilton County raised, Morris said the estimated total is over $80,000. More than $50,000 of that amount was collected through the Edgerton Explorit Center alone, which finished as the top fundraiser for the day.
