A thief stole money that was being raised at a Lakeville fundraiser for the organization Feed My Starving Children, KARE 11 reports.
The station talks to two high school students who helped organize the event, Lakeville North High School senior Maddy Siriouthay and South High junior Kami Wood, who are undeterred in their effort to raise $30,000 for the organization. They have raised about $9,000 so far.
"We are so motivated to get it all back and then some," Siriouthay told KARE.
The event was Thursday and included a silent auction, artwork sales and student performances. It was marred when an organizer realized that an undisclosed amount of money raised at the event, stashed in a box under some stairs, had been swiped, KARE 11 reported.
