IRONWOOD TOWNSHIP - To support the fight against cancer, more than 50 residents attended a Touch of Gold gala, benefiting Cole's Foundation Saturday evening at Big Powderhorn Mountain Resort.
Peter Grewe, of Ironwood, played the keyboard as people gathered for the evening at the Gun Barrel Lodge. In his welcoming remarks, Grewe said gold is the color of pediatric cancer awareness.
Cole's Foundation was founded in 2008, after Cole Ruotsala, a 3-year-old boy, died in his parents' arms of adrenocortical carcinoma - a rare form of childhood cancer.
