On February, 23rd, 2013, the West Valley Boys & Girls Club held its 6th Annual Mile of Quarters fundraiser at the Westfield Topanga Mall in Woodland Hills, California. A large group of sponsors and dignitaries supported the effort, including our own Nancy Cartwright and a team from Happy House. Nancy and Happy House were the entertainment sponsors for the event.
And yes, that’s a quarter in Nancy’s eye! (Click here to see Daily News photos)
An enthusiastic crowd of kids laid down 68,000 quarters to make up the Mile of Quarters. The quarters were laid out on the floor on specially marked carpet, with one square foot equaling $3.25. When the entire mile of quarters is completed, $17,160 will be laid out on the floor.
Here’s what most of a mile quarters looks like:
The Daily News captured some wonderful images of the event which you can see here.
