Self-Help International gathered in the Cedar Valley Sunday night for their "Rat Pack Live" fundraiser.

Self-Help is based in Waverly. They raised more than $46,000 to support programs in Ghana and Nicaragua.

“We are so pleased with the support we've received for our programs, from the Cedar Valley,” said Nora Tobin, executive director for Self-Help International.

Tobin said the funds raised will cover almost all of a micro-credit program micro-credit for 2015. This include training, education and loans to empower 125 women.
