It was a wonderful morning and the event was a huge success. Because of you, Brian’s Cause was able to raise more than $15,000 for the Brain’s Cause Cancer Treatment Relief Fund! Every person in this community has been personally touched by cancer either through family, friends or co-workers. This fund is in continual need of money because it has been able to assist at this point in time three worthy recipients with their cancer treatment costs needs. The ability of the community to come together and help in these cases is such a wonderful way to give back. It is organizer’s hope to increase the monies in the Brian’s Cause Fund so that they may be able to help more qualified patients.

The Foundation would like to thank corporate sponsors: Intat Precision, Inc., Wells Fargo, Champs Group Purchasing, Emerson Climate Technologies, blue CPAs/Advisors, Davis Towing & Recovery, MainSource Bank, NineStar Communications, Rushville Pharmacy, Coverys, Dawson Oil Company, Farm Credit Services, L&M Cattle Company, Long-Lasting Designs, Malson Law Office, Midwest Ag Finance, Miller’s Merry Manor, Pizza King, PKG Express, Trane, Jeff & Tammy O”Mara, and Zumba by Carrie Simmerman.

Without you this event just could not happen. A huge thanks goes to the many businesses and individuals that donated for our silent auction.
