Sunday, November 6th, 2016 marked the sixth annual "Dance for Life" benefit held at the Echo Valley Banquet and Reception Hall in West Union, Iowa.
This annual fundraiser was started by Darwin "Lefty" Schrage in memory of his wife, Barb, who had fallen victim to ovarian cancer on March 4, 2011. This annual event has raised thousands of dollars for ovarian cancer research, and Lefty vows to continue this tradition until a cure has been found for this devastating disease.
There was continuous, live music provided by the best of the best regional bands from 1:00-9:00 PM. There was plenty of food and a free-will donation plus a silent auction. Proceeds went to ovarian cancer research.
Doors opened at noon.
