Betty White Challenge raises money for Dane County Humane Society

MADISON, Wis. — The Dane County Humane Society on Tuesday celebrated what would have been actress Betty White’s 101st birthday by taking part in an animal welfare fundraising challenge.

Last year, thousands of White’s fans continued her legacy of animal welfare by donating more than $12 million to shelters, rescues and charities in her honor. This year, the humane society asked supporters to donate again, with donors Steve and Margie Holzhueter matching gifts up to $2,500.

“Because we are non-profit, and we’re independent of the government and state agencies, we rely so much on our community support, so we are very grateful for any amount that anyone wants to donate,” DCHS public relations coordinator Lisa Bernard said.

Last year, the challenge raised $50,000 for the humane society. To donate, click or tap here.
