They agreed to donate one turkey for each of the 83 points scored in the game, with the proceeds split between FISH and Jamieson Community Center in Monmouth. Canned goods collected at the game were also donated. Assisting with the deliveries at both Galesburg and Monmouth were MC students Jennifer Wheeler of Byron (second from left) and Annie Soto of Chicago.
