Money Raised For Kosciusko Cancer Care Fund

More than $80,000 was raised during Saturday night’s annual Cancer Care Fund of Kosciusko County Gala. Hundreds of people attended the gala and the auction brought in $85,745, according to Liz Surface, auction chairwoman. The gala raises money for the fund and was held at Tippecanoe Lake Country Club. The fund assists those battling with cancer in Kosciusko County with rent or mortgage payments, utilities, and car payments and insurance. Attendees had the opportunity to bid on live- and silent-auction items that were donated by community members.  The theme for the evening was “Evening of Hope: Back to the Roaring ’20s.”
