Monday’s Bright Spot shines on the “Taste for the Race.”

The annual fundraiser to benefit Mercy Flight Central raised $300,000 on Friday. That brought the total donations raised from the event to $1 million since its start in 2004.

In the last 25 years, Mercy Flight has flown 14,000 people in need of emergency care to hospitals for treatment.
