This year’s American Cancer Society Gala raised over $90,000. A total of 275 people attended this year’s event and it was held at Rusted Route Farms in Cape Girardeau last Saturday. The event sold out. The gala held last year raised just over $100,000, but a total of $10,000 from this year’s event went towards a grant to help with transportation of cancer patients. Officials say, each year a restricted portion of the donations goes towards a specific cause.
