Gilroy’s Relay for Life earned at least $106,000 for the American Cancer Society this past weekend, and proceeds were still being tabulated as of Monday. Final proceeds for the event likely will not be known until next week, event chair Rosie Altamirano said.

“Hopefully, it’s just a modest amount of money,” she said of the $106,000.

The event attracted more than 1,000 Gilroy residents over the weekend. A Miss Relay event, which entailed men dressing up in women’s clothing, raised more than $700 in a manner of minutes, Altamirano said.
