2015 Relay for Life nets over $40,000

The annual Relay for Life event last Saturday was met with fair weather and a full roster of activities as usual. Throughout the day everyone was treated to live music (including Elvis), some local talent, karaoke, contests and prizes- plus a wide variety of delicious food cooked up on the spot.

Earlier today it was reported the grand total for this year was $40,214.10, but that number continues to grow as donations are still coming in.

Team Educate tops the list of most money earned with a total of $10,541.43, with the Memories for Mom team in second place at $8.428.00.

Corporate donations this year rounded out to $10.930.00.

Most team spirit and Best Campsite awards went to Team MASH.

A special thank you to all those who participated in the day-long event and to all those attended, and of course to those who donated.

The day wound down with the ceremonial lighting of luminaries at 10 pm.

More information will be published as it becomes available.
