This year’s Celebrity DJ’s pulled out all the stops to raise money during their hour. Some were given money for singing, while others were given donations for not singing.

In addition, drawings were held for other prizes. Pamela Peters won the golf cart. Anyone who made a donation had their name put into a drawing for a chance to win two other prizes. The winner of a grill from the Sturgis Wal Mart store was Tom and Bethan Hamilton, while Bob and Diana Hile won a $100 gift cart from the Three Rivers Wal Mart store.
