FARGO — Is there anything more wonderful than big, juicy cherries in the summer? How about if buying them benefits others?
For one week, beginning Wednesday, July 10, the 37th annual Cherries for Charity fundraiser is being held at all eight Hornbacher's locations in Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo. For every pound of Washington Bing cherries sold, the grocery store will donate 25 cents to the Fargo-Moorhead Cosmopolitan Club, an organization focused on the fight against diabetes and contributing to community well-being through donations and volunteer service.
Cherries for Charity has raised almost $500,000 for the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center and the YWCA Cass Clay. The event runs through Tuesday, July 16.
