More than $5,000 was raised at an event filled with lively music, warm food and the spirit of generosity at the Puerto Rican Society in Waukegan on Wednesday.

The $5,236 raised that night will go to the Puerto Rican Relief Fund, which aids in the recovery from the devastation that Hurricane Maria caused in September.

The Climate Action for Lake County and Puerto Rico event was hosted by the Sierra Club, along with Lake County Board Chairman Aaron Lawlor, the Puerto Rican Society and Clean Power Lake County.

It aimed to raise money and items for the people of Puerto Rico, who still, after nearly two-and-a-half months, continue to live without basic necessities such as water and electricity in many parts of the island.
