Raising Money: American Cancer Society: 2012 Relay for Life
Now that it’s been a couple of months since we participated in the amazing Central Oregon Relay for Life, we can take a moment to reflect on the event and what we were able to accomplish. Being involved together in an event like this was special for all of us, and we are glad that the money we raised will be put to good use fighting cancer.
We are pleased to announce that this year’s Relay for Life raised a total of $131,777 – the most money EVER RAISED for the Relay for Life (Bend/Redmond/Sisters). Last year, the event brought in about 2/3 of that amount at $88,813. We put in a lot of hard work and we are so delighted that it paid off!
Several people in The Garner Group’s Bend, Oregon real estate offices participated in the planning for the event – Sara LaFaver, our principal broker, co-chaired the event along with Phyllis Mageau; Melody Lessar was co-chair for the Luminaria fundraiser, and Colleen Horton was the food chair.
Not only were many of us involved from the beginning in bringing the event to fruition, but Erica Davis and Alison Mata – our team captains – recruited a huge team to walk during the relay. Several people from our office, friends and family, and brokers from other agencies around town all turned out to lend their support.
Want to get involved? Next year’s Relay for Life is schedule for August 10, 2013.
