RiverLink takes up a challenge

One of RiverLink’s donors has offered to match 2 for 1 all donations made to the organization between now and June 30. The organization’s annual-fund chair, Patsy Keever, explained, “If you donate $100, RiverLink will receive an additional $200 from our donor.” 

RiverLink is an Asheville-based nonprofit dedicated to preserving the French Broad River and spearheading economic and environmental revitalization. The organization’s annual-fund goal is $175,000. Thus far, Keever says the organization has raised $139,000. For more information, visit RiverLink’s Web site or call 252-8474. 

Donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 15488, Asheville, NC 28813; that said, Keever added that “we will even pick your check or money order up.”
