Annual Fundraiser Brings in the Bucks to Fight Multiple Sclerosis in the Illinois Valley

Posted by wlpo on April 5, 2016

Cancer wasn’t the only cause that brought in tens of thousands of dollars in donations over the weekend.

The “Illinois Valley Legion Against Lesions” had their 3rd annual charity event Saturday night, and as of this morning the event raised more than $21,000. By comparison, the event raised about $27,000 total in its first 2 years. The IVLAL was started by Jacci Pavy and her husband to help people in the Illinois Valley who are fighting multiple sclerosis.

In a statement on the group’s Facebook page, Pavy called this year’s event a “incredible journey” and “humbling experience.”
