The Ramona store is one of 10 Hallmark stores owned by Guy and Mary Elam participating in the fundraiser. Store Manager Susan Mulvey said that as of Feb. 11, the store was in second place, behind the Poway store, with the most donations. Last year, the Ramona store tied for first place with Elam stores in Poway and Rancho San Diego, with each store raising $1,750 during February for cystic fibrosis. The store at 1423 Main St. will continue the fundraiser until Feb. 28.
