Several residents were on hand March 25 for the second Dottie Burgess Hope Dinner, a fundraiser for Relay For Life.
Several people managed to attend the second Dottie Burgess Hope Dinner, which took place at Cloverleaf Healthcare March 25.

"Attendance was down a little from last year, but we made $200 over our goal for the night, so we are absolutely thrilled. There are not enough words to express our gratitude," Cloverleaf Administrator Deanna Hickman said.

Cloverleaf Healthcare raised $1,011 with proceeds coming from the dinner, the raffle and cancer society name placards.

Local Cancer Society representative, Rachel Romas, was also at the event, selling Daffodils for the Daffodil Days Campaign, which also supports the efforts of the American Cancer Society.

Cloverleaf Healthcare has other fundraising events planned before the Relay For Life event May 22-23, but the dinner brings in the majority of its contributions.

Planning for next year's event has already started.

"We are proud to be a part of something so big,' Community Liaison Director Lisa Bell said.

It makes us happy to help a cause that directly benefits our community every day."
