“This was a close one,” Davies, the executive director, said after the big reveal. “Sixty-three years in a row. What can I say? Congratulations Shelby County because its all about you, so thank you, thank you, thank you.”
SCUFFY raised $827,896.96 — or $2,896.96 more than the goal. The organization still needed less than 10 percent of the goal heading into the final day, but reached it.
The end of drive dinner was a chance for SCUFFY organizers to thank the companies, schools and individuals who made it possible to reach their goal for the 63rd time in a row.
