We had a lot of fun Monday morning on WGEL in the name of a great cause – two great causes, in fact!
Our Great Celebrity Pie Auction kicked off with special guests Bond County Clerk Meg Sybert; State’s Attorney Dora Man; Coroner Tony Brooks; Mulberry Grove Elementary Principal Chad Nelson; Unit 1 Superintendent Casie Bowman; Greenville Tourism Director Jes Adam; Economic Development Director Bill Walker; First Christian Church Pastor Tyson Graber; WGEL Farm Reporter Joe Doll; Health Dept. Administrator Sean Eifert; and Patti Brooks & Gina Goldsmith from the Lemuel Rhodes Cancer Foundation.
That group, the LRCF, is the recipients of the funds raised, which totaled $6,535 after just one day! That number includes all winning bids and over $600 in additional donations on top of the bids. In addition, $1,100 came in which will be given directly to Brody Haston and his family as he receives treatment for liver cancer.
