Teens at Girls Inc. raise over $12,000 for charity

Teens at Girls Inc. have completed their Money Matters Project. The girls earned $12,239.50 of which $1,000 will go to the Make a Wish Foundation and the rest to the American Cancer Society.

The girls will hold up a huge chain with 123,950 links representing each penny raised today at 2 p.m. at the Baker Center on Levy Road.

For six weeks, four teams of girls from four centers competed in tasks and did different fund-raisers including raffles and selling jewelry they'd made.
