Relay for Life kicked off at 6pm May 13th and there was a great turnout. The booths were to be decorated like different board games.
Our board game was Jumanji! We had three tables full of donations. All the details of the set up can be seen in the pictures.
Unfortunately part way into the night the weather took a turn for the worse so we were forced to pack up and leave early. So instead of staying out until 8am Saturday we were out by 1am. We did manage to raise some money in the time we were there. According to the Cancer Society people they will continue to accept donation for 2011 until August.
So I will be setting up a booth again next weekend May 21st, June 18th, and July 16th in hopes of picking up where we left off last night. So the items that did not sell will still have a chance. In August I'll be able to get a grand total of the funds raised for this year. So while it was sad not to have the event last the full length we are going to continue on. The important thing is the money we make to find a cure for cancer.
There are plenty more picture. To view them please see our facebook page!
