Raising money for cancer patients

BISMARCK, N.D. - A Masquerade fundraiser and Bismarck Cancer Centers' largest fundraiser of the year happened on Saturday. Masks in the Moonlight raises money to help cancer patients with expenses.

Money raised Saturday will go toward gas cards, lodging and nutrition specialists for patients. Those are all things that are generally not covered by insurance.

"people can come and pretend to be a different personality for the night, maybe. But I think people really like the give-back quality. You have a really time but you're also benefiting a great charity," said Bismarck Cancer Center marketing director, Sara Kelsch.

This is the 12th year of the charity event. Last years event raised a record 115-thousand dollars.
