The Central Texas Sickle Cell Anemia Association is trying something new to raise money this year. Instead of investing in an expensive fundraising gala, the association is launching a “$10,000 in 10 Days” campaign. The Rev. Gene Carter, who founded the organization more 30 years ago, explained the change.

“We’ve had big celebrations in the past,” said Carter, the association’s executive director. “We had a big celebration at the Killeen Convention Center three years ago, and that was a $20,000 affair. That is not possible in this economy.”
