Earlier this month, at the 11th annual Pocono Mountains Community Fundraiser, Sanofi Pasteur executives revealed more than $2 million has been raised through its ongoing signature fundraising programs. These programs benefit critical Pennsylvania community non-profit organizations.
The collective total included more than $185,000 awarded at the event to four local human services organizations benefitting those in Monroe County, along with prior fundraising totals from both the Pocono Mountains and Lackawanna County Community Fundraisers. Since its inception in 2004, the Pocono Mountains Community Fundraiser has grown to be the largest single fundraiser event in Monroe County, distributing more than $1.6 million. This year’s theme, “Together – Changing Lives in the Poconos,” emphasized the accomplishments mastered behind the scenes, thereby underscoring the event’s comprehensive focus in making a difference.
