Fundraiser for domestic violence victims raises $510K

December 11, 2011 (CHICAGO)

The 8th annual "Sweet Home Chicago" event took place at the Four Seasons ballroom.

Children made houses out of gingerbread, frosting, and gumdrops.

Proceeds will go to the organization WINGS - Women In Need Growing Stronger, which provides housing and other services for victims of domestic violence.

The goal had been $475,000, but the benefit brought in $510,000.

Organizers say this was their best year ever.
