LONG BEACH The donation jars were tallied Friday and Chinook Observer reporter Kevin Heimbigner, right, received the most donations in his jar for the Observers Kiss Away Cancer contest.
Over the past two weeks, the public was given a chance to vote for the Observer employee they would like to see kiss a crab. In the spirit of Valentines Day, Heimbigner was a good sport and gave the crustacean a peck.
The Kiss Away Cancer contest raised $200 for the American Cancer Societys Relay for Life of the Long Beach Peninsula, which will be held at the Ilwaco track on June 24 and 25.
Thank you to Pierre Marchand at Jessies Ilwaco Fish for setting aside a picture-perfect crab for the cause.
