Pie Auction Tops $28,000

After an unbelievable third day, the total for this year’s WGEL Great Celebrity Pie Auction came to $28,197! That includes thousands of dollars of donations, over and above the winning pie pids! We want to thank our community for getting behind this effort and supporting the Lemuel Rhodes Cancer Foundation in their efforts to help local folks in their battle with cancer.

Don’t forget their annual Celebration of Life will be on Tom Doll Field this Saturday, September 16, from 4 to 8 PM.
