HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -- On Saturday night Hannibal High School hosted the third annual Pirate Family Foundation Dinner and Auction, an event that was started in memory of Hannibal alum Colin Krigbaum who passed away in a car accident back in 2008
On Sunday, the foundation chairman Blane Mundle was happy to tell WGEM Sports that Saturday was a big success.
This year, Mundle and the Foundation teamed up with the Hannibal Cavemen who brought Hall of Fame NFL tight end Dave Casper to the event, which helped raise a large portion of money toward their goal.
Cavemen general manager John Civitate says nights like this are by far the biggest impact his organization can have on the community.
As of now, most of the money raised at Saturday nights event has been totaled, adding up to over twelve thousand dollars, but Mundle says it's all said and done, the total may even exceed the goal of fifteen thousand dollars.
