At Saturday’s Lemuel Rhodes Cancer Foundation’s Celebration of Life, WGEL Radio was honored for sponsoring the annual pie auction to raise funds for the foundation.
Darryl Bolen, a long-time participant in the pie auction, presented a certificate of appreciation to Station Manager Tom Kennedy.
Bolen pointed out that the auction has raised over $31,000 over the last three years. He thanked Kennedy for the promotion WGEL gives to good works throughout the community and praised the “benevolent spirit” of Bond County residents.

Kennedy said it is believed the pie auction has been conducted for at least 17 years. In the last three years, all proceeds have gone to the Rhodes Cancer Foundation.
