MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Officials at Montpelier’s National Life Group say the inaugural Do Good Festival held on the grounds of the company’s headquarters raised almost $11,000 for a cancer treatment center at the area hospital.

The money raised by the festival will benefit Branches of Hope, the Cancer Patient Fund at Central Vermont Medical Center’s National Life Cancer Treatment Center.

About 1,500 people attended the Saturday event in Montpelier.

Branches of Hope helps with the basic living expenses and emergency and special needs of people receiving cancer care.
