News 3 Now’s ‘Sending Hope to the South’ fundraiser brings in nearly $70K, surpassing $50K goal


MADISON, Wis. — We asked, and you answered in a big way!

Thanks to nearly generous News 3 Now viewers and sponsors, our virtual “Sending Hope to the South” telethon with the American Red Cross has shattered its $50,000 goal. As of 10:15 p.m., the total raised sat at just over $69,000.

That money will help those affected by the recent deadly tornadoes in Kentucky and other hard-hit areas.
