The Harrison County Chamber of Commerce held a 'Business After Hours" celebration at the North Central West Virginia Airport on Tuesday.

The chamber recognized the Chopper for Charity program and presented checks to the organizations it helped in Harrison County.

Choppers for Charity raised money for local charities last December by offering discount helicopter rides.

Airport Director Rick Rock said the event raised $20,000 for four local charities.

"Well, they're all great programs. United Way is obviously represented in many community organization. Mountaineer Food Bank feeds the people that are hungry. Teen Challenge is a great program for teenagers in our community," Rock said.

Rock also said the airport hopes to do other charity events in the future.
