The Paris 500…Lamar County’s Race for a Cure – the theme and title of this year’s Relay for Life event — couldn’t have went better. The teams that participated all did spectacular and a huge thank you goes out to all of you.
The grand total of money raised for the 2012 Relay for Life event is $50,250 — so far. The top five placing teams in fundraising were Texas Oncology ($11,055), First Federal Bank ($7,130.96), People’s Bank ($4,392), Kimberly Clark ($3,376.20), and Brookshires ($2,200.50).
These weren’t the only teams that participated though. There were over 40 teams to sign up for this year’s event, which is the most ever. There was over $13,000 raised by teams online prior to the event.
This is certainly a year for the record books for Lamar County’s Relay for Life, however, these totals could still change and more fundraising can still be done for 2012′s Race for the Cure. Money can raised up until August 31, 2012.
On Thursday, July 12 — 6pm — at Celebrate It there will be a Relay for Life Wrap-Up dinner and party for all Committee Members & Team Captains. Each person may bring a guest. There will be food and fun and a much deserved celebration for all the team’s job well done.
Please make sure and RSVP your seat so that there is enough food for everyone. You can do this by emailing Molly Woodall at email@example.com. You won’t want to miss this.
At this dinner, the first 20 teams to sign up for the 2013 Relay for Life will receive a VERY nice Welcome Back gift! In order to be eligible for this gift, you will be asked to pay the $25 registration fee that night.
A theme for teams and campsites for Relay for Life 2013 will also be voted upon and chosen at the Wrap-Up dinner. Below is a link to a list of suggested themes from around the country. Send in your suggestion to firstname.lastname@example.org before Thursday night. If you have another idea than those on the list, send that in as well. The Relay committee will take the top 10 and vote on them at the dinner.
