Cancer fundraisers bring in big dollars

Posted by wlpo on April 4, 2016

The generosity of the Illinois Valley has shown through again. Two different weekend fundraisers to help those fighting cancer raised thousands of dollars.

A two-day truckload sale at the Dalzell Fire Department brought in over $63,000. Many people waited in lines Saturday and Sunday to get products at a discounted price. Proceeds go to the Cops 4 Cancer organization.

On Sunday, over $12,000 was raised at the latest St. Baldrick’s Foundation fundraiser. The head-shaving event included over a dozen firefighters from Utica, Oglesby, Peru, Ladd and McNabb getting haircuts.
