Thursday evening was a special night for the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life.
Bank Night, the time when teams turn in money collected through their fundraising efforts, netted this year's Driving Cancer Out of Our Community campaign another $5777.99.
This makes the total received so far $24,622.17, just shy of the event's goal of $38,000. More teams are expected to turn in their fundraising money before the 12-hour event on Saturday.
The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life event will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the YMCA today.
