City councilman Leonard braves dunk tank to raise money at Relay for Life

St. Louis City Councilman Bill Leonard manned the dunk tank for an hour to help raise money for Gratiot/Isabella Relay for Life on Saturday, Aug. 14, at the Shepherd High School track. 

Folks paid $2 each for three balls that they then used to trigger the mechanism that dunked Leonard.

“There were smaller children that my cousin and I used enhanced tactics to ensure their success and be certain I got wet,” Leonard said.

The event raised $48,000, said St. Louis resident Hannah Peterman of Commercial Bank, one of two event coordinators. (The other one was Jennifer Vaughn, also of Commercial Bank.)
