POMEROY — Pink, gold, orange and many other colors symbolize awareness for various diseases and forms of cancer.

Those and many other colors were represented on Friday at the second annual Cook For A Cure held at the Meigs County Courthouse.

Courthouse employees, as well as those from other offices in Pomeroy, joined together for a soup and chili cook-off and door decorating contest.

Common Pleas Court employee Sammi Mugrage said that in about 80 minutes on Friday afternoon a total of $403 was raised for the Meigs County Cancer Initiative.

Tate Werry won the soup cook-off with a cabbage soup, while Sheriff Keith Wood won the chili cook-off.

The door decorating contest was won by the Victims Assistance Office with a childhood cancer awareness theme.

Cancer survivors were recognized to begin the event as was Chelsie Knopp who is currently battling cancer.

Last year the event focused on breast cancer awareness. This year it was decided to expand to cover all types of cancer.
