A couple of area communities are gearing up in the fight against cancer. The Geneva Cancer Auction this weekend will be the 34th edition. Last year's auction raised $105,000. Over the past 33 auctions the Geneva Cancer Auction has raised over $1.6 million.

Hours will be this Friday, January 12 and Friday January 19 starting at 7PM. The Saturday, January 13 and Saturday, January 20 auctions will start at 2PM at the Geneva Bar and Grill.

The Blooming Prairie Cancer Group has plans for the weekend as well. They'll host a Pancake Breakfast on Sunday, January 14 at the Pizza Cellar in Blooming Prairie. Hours will be 8:30-12:30PM. There will also be a silent auction. Kids are invited to take part in the Coins for Cancer. Bring your coins and place them in the Fish Bowl for the Eagles Cancer Telethon.
