A lot of hard work went into the St. Jude Charity Auction on Saturday, January 14, but it was well worth it as the Ben Bray Real Estate Company raised over $43,500 (total at press time) for the children’s research hospital. On behalf of the Macon County Chronicle, we extend our congratulations to the real estate company for proudly representing Macon County’s contribution to the research facility that treats childhood cancer and other diseases.
