The Baby Fold in Normal says it passed the fundraising goal for its annual Festival of Trees by $35,000. The more than $220,000 raised is also $70,000 more than last year's event. The agency that provides services to children brought in more than eight thousand people to the Festival held at the Interstate Center in Bloomington. The new venue, lower expenses, record sponsorships, and two sellout events all contributed to the increased revenue in support of children.
