EUREKA- Organizers of the weekend's Relay for Life raised $198,000 and expect more donations to come this week.

Gary Gundlach, the event chair, said they raised about $50,000 less than last year, but hope to make up for some of it with remaining fundraising.

Thousands of supporters were at the event this year, Gundlach estimates more than last. The money, he said, will help support local services for patients with cancer and go toward research.
