Watertown Bookstore Holding "The Greatest Fundraiser"

Posted: Updated:

Over $4,600 raised so far in what a north country bookstore is calling "The Greatest Fundraiser."

The Reading Room at Salmon Run Mall has been collecting donations for a prize pack since May.

People are buying tickets to win the prize pack and all the money will go to one north country charity.

The charity that gets the donation will be decided by the Northern New York Community Foundation's Young Philanthropy Council.

"It's going to be widdled down to five and those five will speak in front of the young philanthropists here in front of the store," said LuAnne Rowsam, owner of the Reading Room Bookstore.

Rowsam said the prize pack has grown through donations. 

"It kind of grew and grew and grew. It outgrew a table and now it's in our window and the prize pack is currently $7,895."

The charities will make their presentations to win the donation at the store on Dec. 12.
