"I've got a crew starting at seven tomorrow, they'll run straight through to six, and we've got about 30 to 40 people per shift, we have three shifts, so you figure the math about 120 people", Bob Ilk, Christmas Family Feast lead chef, said. Local officials believe the charity will meet or surpass its $515,000 fundraising goal for the year.

A one ounce Canadian gold coin worth approximately $1,320, was discovered in one of the Louisville Red Kettles last night as staff began their nightly counting of the days take.

The campaign also saw a shortage of volunteers leading into December, when a call was put out for a helping hand in Sherwood Park.
