Coarsegold woman a finalist in Energizer campaign

FRESNO, Calif.

The Energizer Bunny came to Fresno to honor Susanne Waite for the campaign which recognizes people who make positive contributions in their communities.

Monday, she was honored with $1,000 that will go to the charity of her choice.

But if she wins the battery company's campaign, she could get an additional $15,000 to donate.

Waite founded the Kennedy's Disease Association in 2000, which awards money to help fight the neuromuscular disease, a disease her husband is battling.

In order for Waite to win the campaign prize, people must cast a vote for her on the Energizer website.
