After getting 28 of 31 days correct during the October 3-Degree Guarantee, Storm Team Chief Meteorologist Wes Hohenstein presented Cheri Smith, founder of Designing Station in Fayetteville,with a $2,800 check from CBS 17 and Allen Kelly & Company Heating and Air.
Every month, CBS 17 picks a different local charity to raise money and awareness for the daily 3-Degree Guarantee. Each day when the CBS 17 Storm Team gets the next day’s forecast correct within three degrees, CBS 17 and Allen Kelly & Company donate $100 to a charity.
At the end of the month, all the money raised is totaled and presented to that month’s group.
Designing Station was selected as the October 2018 charity. Their mission is to provide furniture for families recovering from disasters, coming out of homelessness, and escaping domestic violence situations.
