Winners of the Washington County Community Foundation’s 2017 Clicks for Cash contest recently gathered at the foundation’s offices in Eighty Four to accept grant checks totaling $5,500. Charities eligible to compete in Clicks for Cash were those that registered by June 1 for the foundation’s annual WCCF Gives day, which will be held Sept. 12.  During the seven-day contest, members of the community were encouraged to visit wccfgives.org and click on the charity profile pages of their favorite WCCF Gives charities. WCCF tracked the unique pageviews of each charity’s profile page to determine a winner. Each unique pageview was counted as a vote for that charity. This year, a total of 19,265 votes were cast, an increase of 40 percent over last year’s total of 13,752 votes. Receiving a total of 5,100 votes during the contest period, Pet Search secured the grand prize: a $3,000 unrestricted grant from the Acorn Fund. This is the second consecutive year that Pet Search has clinched the top spot in the contest. South Hills Pet Rescue and Rehabilitation Resort placed second in the contest with 4,920 votes and received a $500 bonus grant for their efforts. Participating charities that did not win the top prize were entered into a computerized lottery for an opportunity to receive one of four $500 Acorn Fund grants. The charities received one chance in the lottery for each vote they received in the contest. South Hills Pet Rescue and Rehabilitation Resort, the Salvation Army Washington Corps, Center in the Woods and Watchful Shepherd USA were randomly selected as this year’s lottery winners. Participating in the check presentation were, first row, from left, Joanne Reilly, Janet Lane and Kathy Dzikowski, all of Pet Search, and Margaret Allen of the Salvation Army; second row, Tracy Walnoha and Donna Nardine of Watchful Shepherd; Tracey Crompton of Pet Search; and Dorothy Tecklenburg, WCCF trustee; and third row, Tammy Hardy, WCCF trustee; John Childs, Center in the Woods; and Laura Barry, South Hills Pet Rescue.
