I think that is fantastic! Way to go everyone who raised money -- and what a great idea from our firefighters. Big thanks to Aunt York, the Benicia Firefighters, and everyone else who raised money for the Relay for Life. I bet Isabella, Brianna, and mom loved their ride in the fire truck. How cool!
