Inclement weather forced the 2018 version of Kickin’ Cancer from “street party” status to inside the Gallatin Methodist Church, but no problem. The cold and damp weather didn’t seem to put a damper on turnout. The musicians were moved to the church choir loft, dinner was set up in the basement, while tables full of silent auction items lined the periphery of the sanctuary.
This event – the fifth annual – has grown into a Gallatin autumn tradition with this year’s turnout numbering 150 attendees. The money raised, which provides fuel cards for Daviess County residents traveling to and from cancer treatments, stands at $10,022. Once again the Gallatin Men’s Club came through with an 11th hour donation of $2,000 to provide icing on the cake. Event organizers and Daviess County residents who attended are to be commended for providing another year of generous funding for a great cause.
