MDA Fundraiser Featured Carnival, Car Show

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA - Members of the Moose Lodge in Lynchburg hoped to raise thousands of dollars for charities Monday.

For the 13th year in a row, they hosted a carnival and car show to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

There were moon bounces, corn hole games, and a horseshoe tournament Monday.

This year's event was the first year the MDA is donating half the proceeds to the Safe Surfin' Foundation, which helps combat internet crimes involving children.

"You got kids missing every day, 20 thousand kids missing a day all over the United States. So, we're raising money to raise things to protect the kids," said Winfred Campbell.

Organizers estimate they've raised $50,000 for charities over the years because of the fundraiser.

This year they hope to beat last year's total of $2500.
