Randy Martin let us know about a fundraiser for the Charter House Coalition that provides 30,000 free meals a year in Middlebury and overnight accommodations for about 90 people over the colder months. Local supporters can think of this fundraiser as March Madness and the Charter House Coalition is the Cinderella Team, Randy said, pointing out that the Charter House is in competition with groups from Dallas, Houston and Phoenix for a $2,000 prize. He asked people to take a moment and go to a contest Facebook page — tinyurl.com/y29k64ua — and please like and comment. A like is worth one vote and a comment is worth another vote. Also, Randy asked that you please share and tag all your friends. Head online now — the contest runs through late Friday.
