BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – WKBN anchor Chelsea Spears is wrapping up her campaign with the American Heart Association (AHA).
Tuesday night, more than $500 was raised at her final event at Steel Valley Brew Works at the Southern Park Mall.
People were able to get $1 off draft beer. Bocce lanes and billiards were also free for the entire day.
“We’re going to be donating our two bocce lanes and our two billiard tables, it will be free play for the entire day. All that we ask is that you come out and you get involved, get invested, give back and see how much money we can raise!” said Steel Valley Brew Works Founder & Co-Founder Josh Langenheim.
Throughout her nine-week campaign, in total, Spears was able to raise $12,700 for the American Heart Association.
We talked about reducing stress, and how a candle from 1820 could help.
“There’s just something about a flicker of a flame,” said Melissa Smith, with 1820 Candle Company.
Our biggest moneymaker was the cookie walk thanks to St. Pat’s in Hubbard.
“With any need, we’re always first to help. That’s what we’re called to be as Christians,” said Father Mike Swierz.
Most recently we knocked down pins for a purpose at West Side Bowl.
“I personally am a benefactor of the work of the American Heart Association having had open-heart surgery in 2003 and had their support,” said Nate Offerdahl from West Side Bowl.
During the campaign, we met more heart survivors. We all want you to remember: Even healthy people can have heart attacks. If you have a symptom, listen to your body.
