Crew of 10 concocts nearly 1,100 popcorn balls to benefit local relief fund, Haiti victims

Published 01/28/2010, The Daily Republic

The sounds and smells of fresh popcorn wafted through the air at Amstar Wednesday morning as a crew of 10 workers and volunteers spent 10 hours creating 1,097 gooey popcorn balls in the name of charity.
