The 61st annual WHAS CRUSADE FOR CHILDREN raised $5,637,680 for children with special needs in the LOUISVILLE area this past FRIDAY and SATURDAY (6/6-7).
The fundraiser, held by CLEAR CHANNEL News-Talk WHAS-A and SANDER MEDIA/GANNETT ABC affiliate WHAS-TV/LOUISVILLE, raises funds through fire departments collecting donations in KENTUCKY and southern INDIANA. This year's total was short of last year's $6 million.
The event has raised about $160 million since its inception in 1954.
