Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River, and organized by Rocky River resident and Rotarian Harlan Radford, the event exceeded its $14,000 goal by over 23%, with $17,252 being raised. The additional funds raised will be utilized by both departments to acquire more needed equipment.
