Cherries: the quintessential summer fruit. Whether you are gathered around a bonfire, cooling off in the pool, or manning the grill at your neighborhood cookout, cherries are the perfect pairing to any summer tradition.
July is the peak of the cherry harvest which means Cherries for Charity is upon us. This meaningful (and tasty) event has been a celebrated tradition in the Fargo-Moorhead area every summer for the past 34 years!
The annual Cherries for Charity event will be held at all eight Hornbacher’s locations in Fargo-Moorhead and Grand Forks beginning on Wednesday, July 13 and running through Tuesday, July 19. 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 2015, Cherries for Charity resulted in a total donation of $20,000!
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 $359,000 for the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center and the YWCA Cass Clay – equivalent to over 1.3 million pounds of cherries!
Help us spread the word and stop by your neighborhood Hornbacher’s between Wednesday, July 13 and Tuesday, July 19 to pick up your cherries!
Thank you in advance on behalf of the women and children we serve.
