The votes have all been tallied, and The Big Giver Contest Winner is... Terry Fernsler!
Congratulations to Terry who nominated Kesem at James Madison University (JMU) as his favorite local charity. A $10,000 donation will be made in Terry’s name to Kesem at JMU to help them continue the great work that they do for children whose parents or guardians have been affected by cancer.
And while Terry was the grand prize winner in our Big Giver Contest, the great news is that $1,000 donations will be made on behalf of the other finalists to their nominated charities, too!
