150 Walkers Raise $4,000 for Obama; 300 Rabbis

Walk_picnic_003The story of Barack Obama raising small amounts of money from lots of people continued this past weekend in Rye. On Saturday, 150 walkers met at Rye recreation on Midland Avenue and walked a 1.5 mile Obama "O" raising nearly $4,000 for the Obama campaign, according to Susan Van Dolsen, one of the organizers.
