The Saturday fundraiser for Lola Township firefighter and former Fire Chief Wayne Lawrence was an “overwhelming” success.

“With the food and the silent auction we raised about $3,800,” said Jay Justice. “We had a fishing gear basket last week at Angelo’s in Hallowell and raised about $320 from that which will be included.

In addition and somewhat of a surprise the Caney Fire Department held a fundraiser in Caney with the proceeds going to Chief Lawrence. They presented a check for over $1,500 to the fundraiser.

The Lola Township Fire Department is continuing a raffle through the Cherokee County Fair for several items, including a black powder rifle, a crossbow and a knife made by local craftsman Phil Evans.

Each of the items will be drawn separately.
