The Brainerd High School Class of 1973 recently celebrated its 45th class reunion.
Alumni Mary (Odette) McKay and Dean Savor organized a silent auction and drawing to raise funds in support of classmates who have battled cancer. Out of almost 500 classmates, 41 have passed away-24 from cancer and nine of unknown causes.
The class was able to make a donation of $1,000 to fight cancer in the community.
The class is hoping the reunion and fundraiser will encourage other BHS classes to create a program and legacy of giving back to the community during other reunions.
