TV show fans raise money for shelter

August 24, 2007


Fans of a television show who were raising money for a Lawrence homeless shelter have met their $2,000 goal.

Dana Stodgel, of Illinois, a member of the fan group Fandom Rocks for the CW network series "Supernatural," will be in Lawrence Sept. 2 to present at least a $1,000 donation to Lawrence Community Shelter, 214 W. 10th St.

The members of the fan group have been raising money online through their Web site,, to split equally between the shelter and international charity SOS Children's Villages. They chose the shelter because the show features a fictional family from Lawrence.

Originally, organizers hoped to raise $1,000, but they met that goal in mid-July. Donations put them over the new $2,000 goal on Wednesday, and the fundraiser continues until Sept. 1.
