The “Laughter is the Best Medicine” event raised just over $6,000 for local woman Tina Gallagher.
Gallagher is currently in treatment battling breast cancer. One of the organizers of the event, Catherine Veltkamp, says 150 people attended the event on Saturday.
Veltkamp says money was raised through a raffle, games and a silent auction. Also, many people in the community offered to help and brought in food for the midnight buffet, according to Veltkamp.
She says Yuk Yuks, the Prescott Legion and the DJ all gave a discount to help support. She says Gallagher read a speech and received a standing ovation for it.
Gallagher found out she has breast cancer in December and a link to donate through a gofundme page set up for her can be found here.
