The Mason City to Peoria St. Jude Run Team hosted the 1st St. Jude Spring Fling fundraiser on Saturday, March 22nd at the Mason City American Legion. The event consisted of a catered dinner, live auction, silent auction, DJ, door prizes and 50/50 raffle. We raised $19,016.00 for the kids and families of St. Jude. We would like to thank the Mason City American Legion for donating their building, Gordon Watkins for donating his time to be our auctioneer for the evening, Chad Burton for donating his time as our DJ and to Nelson’s Catering for the delicious meal they provided. We would also like to thank all the individuals and businesses that donated items for one of the auctions or donated door prizes. Also, we would like to thank everyone that attended the event and to those who purchased items on the auctions.
