UPDATE: Make Maddie Mobile Fund

Posted:
WAUSAU (WAOW) -

The Make Maddie Mobile fundraising effort is moving closer to reaching its goal.

Over the week a benefit took place at the Homestead Inn and raised $15,000. That brings total monetary donations to $30,000, so far.

Stephanie Tlusty is the organizer of the effort.

She says the money will be used to buy a van that is wheelchair accessible for her daughter Maddie.

Maddie is a 4-year-old girl from Wausau with multiple disabilities. She must use a wheelchair and other medical equipment.

Tlusty says they are continuing their Make Maddie Mobile fundraising using the pink yard  flamingo campaign.

Participants pay to have the flamingos removed from their yard and have them moved to a friend's yard.
