An item in Thursday's Strictly Business column about The Abajian Foundation of Sharing gave an incomplete list of the nonprofit organizations in the running to receive funds.
The item erroneously reported that eight qualifying nonprofits are eligible for a cash prize. In fact, 34 organizations are in the running.
Abajian Toyota-Scion has partnered with Toyota Motor Co. to distribute $15,000 among three local nonprofit organizations. The top three vote-getters will receive $5,000 each pending approval from Toyota.
Voting ends Monday. Participants can cast their votes at the Abajian Toyota/Scion page on Facebook.
Nonprofits in the running are: American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Walla Walla, Blue Mountain Heart to Heart, Blue Mountain Humane Society, Blue Mountain Land Trust, Blue Mountain Young Life at Lincoln High School, Camp Fire USA of Walla Walla, Carnegie Picture Lab, Children's Home Society of Washington (Walla Walla), Children's Museum of Walla Walla, Children's Wishes and Dreams, College Place Lions Club, Exchange Club of Walla Walla, Fort Walla Walla Museum Valley, Friends of Children of Walla Walla, Girls Council of Walla Walla, Good Samaritan Ministries in Walla Walla, Junior Club of Walla Walla, Kirkman House Museum, McLouglin High School Future Farmers of America, Medical Teams International Dental Van, Milton-Freewater Babe Ruth, Rising Sun Clubhouse, Student Health Options, Sustainable Living Center, The Moms' Network of Walla Walla, Touchet Friends of the Library (Touchet Community Library), Trilogy Recovery Center, United Way of Walla Walla, Valley Residential Services, Walla Walla Area Crime Watch, Walla Walla Community Hospice, Walla Walla Council on Child Abuse and Neglect, Walla Walla Symphony, Walla Walla Valley Historical Society and YWCA of Walla Walla.
