WAYNE – Money raised at a Wayne Restaurant went directly to the Wayne Public Library during a fundraiser earlier this week.
Big Red Country 104.9 was at the Wayne Runza location on Tuesday, August 25. That was the day for the 13th annual Great Books for Great Kids fundraiser.
Whether it was dine-in, drive-thru, or carry-out 15% of all sales went back to the Wayne Public Library.
Last year, during the 12th annual fundraiser, the Wayne Runza raised over $400, which was a record. This year Runza topped that record by raising over $460 on Tuesday.
Throughout the entire chains of Runza Restaurants the Great Books for Great Kids fundraiser achieved a yearly record success. $45,276.56 were donated to area libraries, literacy organizations, and school foundations for the purchase of children’s books.
Now in the past 13 years the total has climbed to over $407,000.
