Exchange club raising money for child abuse victims

January 26, 2007

Albany - - The Annual Coon Hunt is a big money maker for one area service organization.

The Exchange Club hosts the event on its property at the fairgrounds. The group got involved with the coon hunt 16 years ago after the Chamber of Commerce asked members if they could help out. 

"They were having it out at Potter Community, they didn't have the facilities out there that we have here. The club got behind it and were taking the money to help prevent child abuse," says A.J. Nobles.

Last year, the Exchange Club donated $12,000 in hunt proceeds to victims of child abuse. This year, the group hopes to raise at least $13,000  and donate it all to Open Arms child advocacy group.
