Relay for Life brings in almost $50,000

Saturday's Relay for Life was a succes with 21 teams and 156 participants. Everyone's combined efforts raised $47,600 for the Canadian Cancer Society. 

Each team came up with a carnival themed fundraiser. Visitors were seen hoola hooping, smashing old cars, listening to live music and getting their finger nails painted. There was even a participant with portable kissing booth set up. 

"We exceeded our budgets goals for both revenue and participants," said Stacey Cassidy, event organizer. "It was a fantastic event thanks to the outstanding participants, volunteers, sponsors, entertainers and community supporters."
