4th Annual Mayors United

Mayors from all over Southern Oregon supported Access, raising money for those in need across the region.

In Jacksonville, 10 mayors attended the fourth annual "Mayors United" event.

We're told it was a packed crowd. Even NBC 5's Courtney Olish was there to emcee the fundraiser.

"It's been a really big success. The auction tables have been busy. Lots of participation, which is really good," said Olish.

"I think this has been our biggest year ever. We think we've had probably about 250 to 300 people which has been a great great success for us this year," said Phillip Yates, the Nutrition Program Director for Access.

Last year the fundraiser provided 400 thousand meals to hungry local families.

This year, with an even larger turn out, organizers say proceeds should be larger than ever before.
