Relay on the way

A Relay Bunko night was held at the end of March and was a great success in turnout and funds raised. "We had a great turnout for our 2015 Relay for Life Bunko. We had about 58 people show up for this event," said Carol McAdory, one of the organizers of the event. The event was held at Market Cafe with food provided by Johnny Wooten.  "We played actual Bunko for about one hour with door prizes given out between games," said McAdory.  Door prizes were donated by Darlene Bane, Michele Maxey, and Brandi Krajewski (and her helpers). "A big thank you goes out to Johnny Wooten and Market Cafe, Brandi Krajewski, Michele Maxey, Jennifer McAdory, and all who came to support this very worthy cause. We raised almost $800 and had a night of fun, food, and fellowship. Please make plans to join us next year," said McAdory.
