The County Fair Food Store's "Celebrity Baggers and Gas Pumpers" event on Nov. 18 raised $4,690 for the American Cancer Society.

That's a $449 increase from its 2010 donation.

County Fair Vice President of Operations Jim Stewart and store manager Justin Luther recently presented a check to the ACS.

They said the volunteers did "a fantastic job" at the annual event, in which community members bag groceries and pump gas in exchange for donations to the American Cancer Society.

More than 30 volunteers took part.
