After a yearlong hiatus, the board of directors of Fulton County Medical Center Foundation brought back the ever-popular FCMC Dinner-Auction April 4. The funds raised this year went to two deserving projects, the American Cancer Society's '09 Relay For Life Fulton County campaign and Fulton County Medical Center's patient services building project.

Local auctioneer Ronnie Zimmerman auctioned off nearly 100 traditional items while 250 attendees bid. There were more than 300 total items on the traditional and silent auctions. The auction netted more than $12,000.
