Relay For Life 2009 is over!!!

We raised $125,548.82 at our 2009 Relay For Life on May 30th & 31st! This money will go to the American Cancer Society and it's mission for it's Education, Advocacy, Research and Services! Great job teams! It was a great event with tons of fun and fundraising! Lot's of activities from watermelon eating and pie eating competitions, to cake walks, People Bingo, a scavenger hunt and a kids carnival tent! We had wonderful bands that graciously came and entertained at our event! We even had a magician and some local dancers who added some extra fun! Our annual Mr. Relay was entertaining (as always) and included many "beautiful ladies"! The Survivor lap and luncheon was amazing and the Luminaria Ceremony was extremely moving, as always.

You have all done a wonderful job with your fundraising and I'm looking forward to next year being even better!

Don't forget that you can continue to turn in money until August 31st for this Relay year. Our goal this year is $162,009, so we still have a little ways to go! But any money turned in is better than none!

Our wrap up meeting is Monday June 15th at the Camas Library! 5:30-6:30 for Committee members and 7:00-8:00pm for Team Captains and the public! We are looking for more Committee members for the new year and I know that many of you would be excellent! Please let me know if you are interested because the more we have to help, the better our 2010 Relay will be!

See you soon!
