American Cancer Society Fund Raiser A Success!
The Relay for Life yard sale kicked off without a hitch on Saturday morning. Like many yard sales, the morning begin very early with a bustling of early bird’s hoping to “find the worm” or second-hand treasure in this case.
With tables of clothing, toys, house wares, shoes and other accessories, the folks began lining up to purchase their items with all proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society.
Among the donated items were delicious baked good such as breads, muffins, brownies, cookies and Rice Krispy Treats donated by the staff. These baked items were a number one with the crowd who enjoyed having a little homemade treat.
The weather was very pleasing with a slightly overcast sky earlier in the day but turning into a brilliant spring day full of sunshine. The weather was absolutely perfect for attending the various yard sales and car washes set up throughout the community on Saturday.
The Stanberry Insurance Relay Team raised a grand total of $462 which will benefit the Relay event in June.
“We were very pleased with the overall success of the yard sale and look forward to contributing this money to a good cause,” said team captain, Heather Hyatt.
Relay for Life will be held at the Jackson County Recreation Center on June 4 beginning at 6:00 pm. For more information on this event and participation, visit our Relay page.
