CRAIG — Young Life Bear River held its annual fundraising banquet Sunday at Moffat County High School. The event included a taco bar, social and live multimedia show.

About 160 people attended the event, raising a little more than $11,000 in donations and from the silent auction.

“We are grateful for the people that came,” said Area Director Dave Pressgrove.

About $1,000 of the funds raised will help pay for a charter bus to take children to summer camp in Minnesota.

“We are trying to fundraise for that to avoid passing expenses on to our kids and have a goal of raising $8,000,” Pressgrove said.

The group’s efforts will continue during upcoming events.
