Second annual cruise for a cause
On June 22, 2017, 147 people, including eight colon cancer survivors, gathered in Stillwater, MN to enjoy themselves on the luxury yacht, Majestic Star, for Mezin-Koats Colon Cancer Research's largest fundraiser of the year, Cruise for a Cause. The rain stopped and the sun came out just in time to make a perfect evening for a lovely float down the St. Croix River.
Thanks to the generosity of everyone who attended, those who bid on silent and live auction items, and the generous people who matched donations, auction proceeds and registration fees, $60,000 was raised and will all be used to fund research at Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota, to find a cure for colon cancer. Danna would be impressed!
