Pickett Relay For Life raises $40,000.00Submitted by: Janet Huddleston
Pickett County has just completed another successful Relay For Life event. Despite the unseasonably cool weather there was a great attendance for the all night event which began Friday, June 1st and ended in the early morning hours of Saturday.
The Relay For Life of Pickett County would like to thank everyone who attended the event and for all of the community support. Without the support of our wonderful community it just simply would not happen.
We had ten teams participating this year bringing in $23,500.00 with various fundraising events and luminaria sales. Our top team this year is Bloomington Christian Church with a total of $7,116.00, the other teams participating are the Conner Family, Etter Baptist Church, First Baptist Church, Moodyville Missionary Baptist Church, Byrdstown First United Methodist Church, Williams Chapel, Union Bank, Peoples Bank and PCHS. Thank you to all the teams for all the hard work involved in the funds raised. The “Team Spirit” award for this year went to Williams Chapel, this award is earned by participating in various events at the Relay event.
The Relay For Life of Pickett County would like to thank everyone who supported this event in any way whether you were involved directly or supported any or all of the various fund raising events held throughout the year, it is greatly appreciated by the committee and the cancer patients who have received support thorough the American Cancer Society. You are the ones who make the services available through your generosity.
Pickett County thank you for being a great community.
