Shelby County United Fund For You reaches 2017 goal of $825,000 on final day of drive

Ross Flint, Shelbyville News

With the flash of one number, Angie Davies, Brent Sandman and the rest of the many people involved with SCUFFY breathed a sigh of relief Wednesday night.

When the digit '7' appeared on the screen, it indicated Shelby County United Fund For You reached its goal of $825,000 in 2017. And the audience who attended the end of drive dinner responded, giving a standing ovation.

“This was a close one,” Davies, the executive director, said after the big reveal. “Sixty-three years in a row. What can I say? Congratulations Shelby County because its all about you, so thank you, thank you, thank you.”

SCUFFY raised $827,896.96 — or $2,896.96 more than the goal. The organization still needed less than 10 percent of the goal heading into the final day, but reached it.

The end of drive dinner was a chance for SCUFFY organizers to thank the companies, schools and individuals who made it possible to reach their goal for the 63rd time in a row.
