FOREST CITY | MBT Bank’s Relay For Life team raised $3,500 through a masquerade event called “Unmask The Cure" on March 3 in Forest City.
All proceeds will go to Winnebago County Relay For Life.
The event featured heavy appetizers, a DJ, dancing, live entertainment, a “Best Mask Contest” with prizes, a cash bar and a live auction.
This is the first year the MBT Relay for Life team has hosted the fundraiser. Team member Ryan Arndorfer said they are already talking about doing it again next year.
"We had a really nice turnout and we are really happy with the money we raised," he said.
The 2018 Winnebago County Relay For Life event is scheduled from noon to 10 p.m. on June 23 on the Winnebago County Courthouse Square in Forest City.
