Relay Raises Over $33K

June 25, 2013

Barnes County Relay for Life co-chair Marge Bessette said the annual cancer fundraiser raised about $33,500 so far this year.

Mary Dahl, representative with the American Cancer Society, said their goal was to surpass last year's fundraising amount, and "we did that," raising more than the $30,000 raised last year. She expects money will trickle in for at least a week and perhaps throughout the summer.
