COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- KRDO viewers answered the call during the Colorado Honor Telethon on Wednesday, and we raised enough money to lay nearly 2,000 wreaths at veterans graves in Colorado this year.
A grand total of $28,920 was raised at 9 p.m. Wednesday, with more donations coming in. Each handmade balsam fir wreath costs fifteen dollars, so you made a big difference.
The wreaths will be laid at graves in the Pikes Peak National Cemetery, and if there are more available, they'll go to Fort Logan and Fort Lyon.
