LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Another area fundraiser is wrapping up after 30 years of community service.
The Franciscan Healthcare Auxiliary held the grand finale of the Tiny Tim Benefit this weekend.
In the past, the organization has been able to raise over one million dollars to benefit health-related needs in the community.
The weekend-long fundraiser finished up Sunday morning at the Waterfront with the Jingle Bell Brunch.
The festive brunch featured a performance from Misty's Dance Studio and even a visit from Santa Claus.
Tiny Tim committee representative Deborah Morrissey said the event has made a noticeable impact in community healthcare.
"There are so many needs out there, but not enough funds, and so we feel that we can fit that niche and find the funds and it takes countless hours of volunteers to help do this. And coming together, we've been able to provide for that for these past 30 years," said Morrissey.
This year, the organization is raising money to address behavioral health concerns in Mayo Clinic's Emergency and Urgent Care Center.
