Denise Pallesen, owner of Nutter’s (second from right), proved to be the top fundraiser in our recent ‘Reach-A-Reader’ campaign, the second annual awareness and fundraising event sponsored by the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy and Black Press. Volunteers hit the streets Thursday, Oct. 11, taking donations for CBAL programs and handing copies of the Daily Townsman, Daily Bulletin, and Kootenay Advertiser in exchange. Pallesen raised more than $589 for the cause. Altogether, Reach-A-Reader raised $1,028 in Cranbrook for CBAL programs.
