place prize with $750 collected. Tom Walls, also of Wells Fargo
in Juneau came in fourth with $630 collected. These top fundraisers
will have their choice of two west-coast round-trip tickets on
Alaska Airlines (including Mexico), a Caribbean Cruise for two

and Alaska Airlines.
Wheeler noted that the four
high fundraisers came from around the region. "It's exciting
to see folks from around the region show such strong support
for our programs," said Wheeler. "And it's so wonderful
to see a young girl like Courtney work so hard so other youth
can have the benefit of a Big Brother or Big Sister."
The agency also gave its special
thanks to campaign sponsor McDonald's and to Wells Fargo, who
raised the most money of any organization in the region.
