CORNELIUS – More than 140 people dressed up for an evening of dinner and dancing April 7 to raise money for the future Cornelius Veterans Monument. Many Cornelius staff members worked to make the Gala of Honor run smoothly at the Havana Banquet & Ballroom in the former Palace Theater. Tickets were $100, and Assistant Town Manager Andrew Grant said officials are still calculating how much the event cleared. The fundraising campaign has already reached 70 percent of its goal. The next fundraising event is a poker run Saturday, April 16. Find details about that event at the campaign website, www.corneliusveteransmonument.org.
