Akeley takes the plunge for Audrey's Purple Dream
Akeley's Answer to Cancer - Audrey's Purple Dream - generated a notable turnout on the ice Saturday, fishing lines and bodies dropping into the lake to raise a grand total of $9,000 for the cause.
Proceeds from the event are disbursed to area residents battling cancer, "so they can live out a dream."
Approximately 180 fisherfolk competed in the event with Adam Nelson of Akeley claiming the $1,000 prize for the third largest fish caught.
