Many Petersburg area residents had a hand in the successful Boone County Big Give last week.
A total of $164,472 had been raised from 939 donors as of Tuesday morning, Dec. 6.
Petersburg’s project was raising funds for an outdoor fitness circuit to be installed in the city park.
The goal for this project is $10,000, and the preliminary total raised from the Big Give was $2,395, before sponsor dollars were added. A total of 35 donors had given to the Petersburg project.
Final totals were to be announced later this week.
