Hundreds gathered at Green Brook Park Friday night for the annual Relay for Life fund raiser sponsored by the DeKalb County Unit of the American Cancer Society and the event has generated more than $97,000.
There was plenty of food for sale, games for kids, a male beauty contest, a candle light illumination ceremony, a cancer survivors walk, and more, all in an effort to raise money to find a cure for cancer.
Iva dell Randolph says this year's goal of $100,000 was almost met with still some more money yet to come in. "As of Saturday morning, we had collected and deposited in the bank, $97,562. We want to thank everyone for their support."
SW Manufacturing's team raised $7,426, more than any other team. Smithville Elementary School had the best decorated camp, and K & M Jewelry was recognized for having the Most Spirit.
Mark "Kitty" Violet was the winner of the male beauty contest.
