Approximately $37,000 in funds were raised for the American Cancer Society, similar to last year. The Pennies for Life drive raised another $150. Coordinators for the event reported that it was a “fun night” and the weather was “perfect.” Music, a silent auction and a luminary lighting ceremony were all part of the activities. Leading the survivor victory walk above is Michael Sprandel (dark shirt) who was the honorary chairperson for this year’s Relay for Life. More than 60 survivors circled the bases at Walsh Field.
