Relay for Life 2014 – Magnolia’s $5,000 Goal
Now at $3,200 with 5 weeks to go
We have set a goal of $5,000 to contribute to the local Relay for Life which will take place on Friday evening, May 16, at the UNA practice field. Our first fundraiser (spaghetti supper and talent show) raised approximately $1,200. Then our “Pot Luck Lunch for Relay” brought the total to almost $2,500. Following our latest event, “Hee Haw of a Night!” we reached the $3,000 plateau. On Wednesday night we began the sale of luminaries, lanterns and torches that will be used on the night of Relay for Life. We will soon have commemorative T-shirts for sale as we approach the big evening on May 16. Our total collected now stands at $3,200. Thanks to all for your participation and support!
