The numbers are in for the 2017 Relay For Life of Lincoln County event held June 23. According to treasurer Bev Jerzak of Ivanhoe, the event has raised over $32,000…so far. Donations received through mid-August will still be credited to this year’s total for local Relay teams. Any funds raised after that point will go on next year’s totals.
The Lincoln County event, unlike most, does not happen in the same location every year. Event Chair Kathy Wilmes says it is part of what makes the Lincoln County event more appealing.
