CherryT Ball Drop Brings in Cash Donations and Canned Goods for Charity

Posted: Updated:

Traverse City's CherryT Ball Drop wasn't just about ringing in the new year, it will also help those who need a hot meal.

The event was free, but those who attended were asked to bring canned goods or a cash donation for charity.

The event raised more than 2,000 lbs. of food, and nearly $8,000.

That money will go to Goodwill and the Children's Advocacy Center, in Traverse City.
