Individual donations figured into the total were offered in honor of Mrs. Nancy Aumiller, Mr. Donald Clark, Mrs. Deb Runkle and Ms. Jeannie McCardle as well as in memory of Bill Runkle.

In remembrance of Penny Adams, the late model team of Chad Hollenbeck of Montrose donated $1,000 alone for the second year in a row.

B and R Farm Equipment of Beavertown and Milroy donated the five-gallon fuel jug.

Throughout the night, Relay For Life teams from the Mifflin/Juniata County Relay For Life raised sponsorship funds at displays set up underneath the grandstand.

The Mifflin/Juniata Relay For Life is slated for June 8 and 19 at Kish Park in Lewistown.
