One sweet fund raiser

The Chiefland Cheerleading Team held a mid-summer cake auction and the politicians, public officials and community turned out to satisfy their sweet tooth.

Auctioneer Chad Johnson who handled the bidding at the Thursday, July 17, event said 46 items — and some that were donated back to raise money a second and third time ­— netted nearly $5,000 for the team's expenses.

“For a summertime fund raiser it was very successful,” Johnson said.
