"We're still going to hold a raffle because our goal was to get $5,000" to aid the family, she said. "We're taking raffle tickets to different businesses, hoping we'll get the $1,000 to help them with final expenses."
"This has been absolutely incredible," Munns said of the community response. "I'm so surprised at the community, the donations of all the restaurants with the raffle, the baked goods.
"People from various restaurants brought things out, KFC donated 10 pies. We had so much stuff from the different bakeries in town, we thought we'd have to have another bake sale to get rid of it all," she said.
"It was incredible, every last crumb was sold. The community amazed me. I'd like to thank the community, and all those businesses who donated so generously to make it so successful."
