Splash of Spirits brings in more than first estimated

Tracy Pardy said this year's Splash of Spirits event brought in even more than initially estimated.

The Avera Queen of Peace Foundation director said this year's annual fundraiser cleared $94,720 -- after expenses.

Originally, Pardy estimated the fundraiser brought in about $74,000, which was still a record amount for the event.

"I wanted to be very, very cautious with that," Pardy said.

All of the funds raised go to the cancer care fund, which is through the Avera Queen of Peace Foundation, to help local residents receive cancer screenings.
