LAYTON -- Nurturing the Creative Mind's third annual "Starving for Education" fundraiser met its goal in record time.
Participants raised their foundation's $3,500 budget goal within 24 hours of beginning their fast Friday, and even exceeded that goal by $179.
"In past years we reached our goals of $1,500 and $2,500, but not within the initial 24-hour window," said founding director Amir Jackson of the foundation, which runs workshops to help children express themselves and build confidence through the arts.
"Each (previous) time we had to continue the hunger strike for hours afterward to raise the remaining funds," Jackson said.
