Cherries For Charity Celebrate 33 Years!

What do bonfires, swimming, grilling, and cherries all have in common? These are some of the summer traditions we all enjoy. July is the peak of the cherry harvest which means Cherries for Charity is upon us. This meaningful (and delicious) event has been a celebrated tradition in the Fargo-Moorhead area every summer for the past 33 years!

The annual Cherries for Charity event will be held at all seven Hornbacher’s locations in Fargo-Moorhead beginning on Wednesday, July  8 and running through Tuesday, July 14. Hornbacher’s and the Fargo-Moorhead Cosmopolitan Club will continue the generous tradition of directing proceeds from the sales of cherries at all local Hornbacher’s to the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center and the YWCA Cass Clay. In 2014, Cherries for Charity resulted in a whopping donation of $40,000!

In 1982, the F-M Cosmopolitan Club started Cherries for Charity and, in 1984, partnered with Hornbacher’s. To date, Cherries for Charity has raised over $379,000 for the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center and the YWCA Cass Clay – equivalent to over 1.5 million pounds of cherries!

Help us spread the word and stop by your neighborhood Hornbacher’s between Wednesday, July 8 and Tuesday, July 14 to pick up your batch of cherries.

Thank you in advance on behalf of the women and children we serve.
