How can we describe the overwhelming response to everyone who donated to our recent Benefit for the Cancer Assistance Program? Whether it was donating your time and talents, an auction item or cash, or if you attended the benefit, everything was greatly appreciated.

The profit from this benefit will enable the Cancer Assistance Program to assist cancer patients in treatment to cover mileage expenses, medicines relating to cancer treatment or to purchase a wig if needed. All of the money stays right here in Putnam County for Putnam County people.

Also a big thank you to the many volunteers from the Cancer Assistance Program and the Girlfriends Cancer Support Group who donated their time to contact donors of the many auction items and cash donations. Thanks to Aaron Siefker and Doug Fenbert for their expertise in auctioneering and Another Round for providing wonderful music for dancing throughout the evening.

Once again, many thanks for your continued support.
