The Auglaize County Relay for Life had a good turnout with weather and participants this weekend, organizers say, as teams walked all night for the fight against cancer.
Raising a total of $38,969, teams and organizers said they were thrilled with the total, as it was announced during the closing ceremony on Saturday at the Auglaize County Fairgrounds.
Organizers said this event has two major goals â€” to raise awareness of cancer and to raise funds for research.
A local gospel group, who have been together for 11 years, plans to help kick off the Auglaize County Fair by performing on July 31 in the Gospel Tent.
Just Us Quartet sings a variety of music, including gospel, while sharing their faith through music. The group is a local quartet from Wapakoneta, and are a regular to the Gospel Tent each year.
The group consists of lead vocalist Dale Dicus, tenor Everett Gross, baritone Garth Parsons, bass Don Bailey and accompanist Karen Butler.
â€śWe sing at places all over the area,â€ť member Don Bailey said. â€śWe will go to any place that invites us.â€ť
