Matt Tann, Cassie’s husband, was presented with a surprise holiday at the fundraising evening.
Kelly Pedlar, Cassie’s friend, helped organise the event. She said: “Cassie was such a strong lady and her children are amazing. Cancer is something that can affect everyone.
“The club was packed with people. The night went very well. A thanks to Gary Carter and Charlie Kendall for stepping in at the last minute and helping out all night and a big thank you to all of the businesses who donated.
“Claire Thomas won a signed personalised photograph of Peter Andrew, but she gave it to Matt’s daughter. Justin Trebilcock won a tour for four at Anfield.”
Funds have been donated to St Julia’s Hospice in Hayle where Cassie lost her battle with cancer.
Scores of people turned out for a fundraising day at the Trelander Community Centre which saw £912.91 donated to Macmillan Cancer Supprt.
