Community members raised more than $20,000 for June Walls medical expenses at Saturday’s Jump Start June’s Heart Chili Supper and Benefit Auction. The Decatur Northside Elementary cafeteria was packed from wall to wall with people who had come to show their support of Walls. Jane McAdoo, Sue Verser and Jackie Eaton — who all served on the benefit committee — declared the event a success. “It really went well. A lot of people really worked hard, but it was worth it,” said Verser.
