Coeur d'Alene Mayor Sandi Bloem, left, and Spokane Mayor Mary Verner have challenged each other to see whose city can raise the most money to help support their community. Each Mayor will be hosting a Salvation Army Red Kettle at a participating Fred Meyer location this Saturday, from 9am-8pm. Kettles will be tallied mid-day, and the city with the highest grossing kettle at the end of the day wins. Mayor Sandi Bloem is scheduled to staff the Red Kettle at Fred Meyer in Coeur d'Alene from 9am to 11am, and will also be visiting her kettle throughout the day. The remaining hours will be staffed with Salvation Army Advisory Board members, community volunteers, and/or paid workers. Mayor Mary Verner is scheduled to staff the Red Kettle at the Thor/Freya Fred Meyer in Spokane from 10am to 11am. The remaining hours will be staffed with community volunteers and/or paid workers/Salvation Army Kroc Center news release. More here.
Question: Who do you think will win? Why?
