To the editor:
On behalf of the American Cancer Society and the Relay for Life of Anderson County, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for helping to make the 2011 Relay for Life a success.
Once again, the City of Lawrenceburg and the American Legion Post 34 provided the beautiful park for us to hold our event and as always, was very accommodating to whatever we needed.
I would also like to thank our many corporate sponsors, the businesses and individuals that provided gifts in kind, and the committee members, entertainers, team captains and team members that made the event a success.
Although we were somewhat hampered by the weather and fell short of our goal this year, we did raise in excess of $80,000. This brings the 10-year total of money raised by the Relay for Life of Anderson County to well over $700,000. For a county of our size to raise this much money is a testament to the giving nature of our community.
Well done, Anderson County, well done!
Again, thanks to everyone in our community who had a part in the Relay. I am proud to be a part of such a caring community that continues to fight against cancer. We are already gearing up for next year and, with your continued support; we look forward to even more success in 2012.
