IRONS— Thanks to contributions from the community, and the hard work of event organizers Christina and Larry Hinken, the third annual Night Owl Party drew in a good crowd on Saturday night at Skinner Park in Irons.

The proceeds from the event supports transportation and other needs of breast cancer patients in Lake County undergoing treatment at Susan P. Wheatlake Regional Cancer Center in Reed City.

Classic rock cover band Onegar cranked out tunes and those in attendance took to the dance floor. A snack bar from Club-37 and other food was offered, and auction items filled several tables.

“I want to give back to Susan P. Wheatlake Center, which was so good to me when I was a patient,” Christina said, adding she has been cancer free for four years now. “This cause is near and dear to my heart.”

Christina said she couldn’t have done it without the support of the community.

“We have been very busy this evening. There has been a lot of turnout. The community does a really good job helping with this event and is always so supportive,” Christina said.
