Mission Services Executive Director Ericka Ayala Ronson said all locally raised funds will stay in London to help those experiencing homelessness.

“The reason we are holding this event is not only to raise important funds, but also to raise awareness of what it is like to be there on a cold winter night.

Our goal for this year was to raise $100,000, but we’ve already surpassed that with over $123,000 raised as of Saturday afternoon.
