This is the libraryâ€™s largest fundraiser of the year, with a goal of $6,000 for the event, which is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
today through Friday in front of County Market, said Kathy Smith, secretary for the Punxsutawney Memorial Library Board of Trustees, which sponsors the event.
The winner of the 2012 Chevrolet Equinox or $18,000 in cash Sunday night at the annual SS.C.D. Lawn Festival was Tara Covert of Big Run, (second from left).

The Coverts decided they would rather have the cash than the car.
