Rhubarb could be considered a staple in northeastern Minnesota, and on Saturday, those who love it got to indulge in rhubarb treats while supporting a good cause at the same time.

It was CHUM's annual Rhubarb Festival in Duluth this afternoon. They honored Steve O'neil who started the festival ten years ago. He was a community leader who passed away last year and spent most of his life advocating for Duluth's homeless.

"I just feel the people of Duluth just have hearts to help others, the poor, the vulnerable, the needy," said Janet Nold, Steve O'Neil's sister. "It's a wonderful place to be."

They sold everything from pie to crumble and even rhubarb brats and burritos. They also had a silent auction and bucket raffles. One was dedicated to Steve O'neil.

It's CHUM's biggest fundraiser event of the year.
