CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. — For most organizations in Southwest Florida, an opportunity like the Giving Challenge, doesn't come around very often.
Starting Tuesday at noon, the 24-hour fundraiser will raise millions of dollars for hundreds of non-profit organizations in Charlotte, Desoto, Sarasota, and Manatee Counties.
It's presented by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, and for each individual donation of up to $100, the Patterson Foundation will match every dollar. That allows these organizations to effectively double their money.
