The deserving organization was chosen by Sandy Williams and Suzanne Sipe, both in the Marketing Department, who had this to say about why they chose this organization "We chose the Women's Resource Center because the general audience for this show was Women. In this small community, changes are many women who attend the show or someone they love have utilized one of the many services this organization provides. We felt that it would be a great opportunity for guests of the show to have the change to donate to this organization in lieu of an entry fee."
