Times Union: St. Peter’s ALS Regional Center to Receive $10K in Advertising

St. Peter’s ALS Regional Center will receive a $10,000 advertising grant from the Times Union this year, as part of the newspaper’s “The Big $100,000 Giveaway.”

Nearly 30 local nonprofits competed to win 10 advertising grants, worth $10,000 apiece, from the Times Union. Voting ended Dec. 7, with more than 24,000 votes cast by Capital Region residents.

From the article:

The giveaway, which launched Nov. 16 with the publication of the Capital Region Gives special section, encouraged the public to cast a vote as often as once a day on timesunion.com among dozens of competing nonprofits.

 “It’s true what the numbers say about philanthropy in the Capital District,” said Times Union Publisher/CEO George R. Hearst III. “Our area indices are above average in every category of giving.”

Peter Semenza, SPHP’s vice president of philanthropy, accepted the check at the Times Union on behalf of the ALS Regional Center, alongside representatives from the other nonprofits.
