Relay for Life 2012 Wrap-Up Dinner

Carolyn Lockett, the event chair of the Lamar County Relay for Life, took the time last night at the Relay for Life Wrap-Up Dinner at Celebrate It! to recognize the committee members, sponsors, as well as the teams and individuals who took part this year. There was a delicious spread of food for attendees of the dinner, as well as a chance for everyone to vote on next year’s theme. The Relay for Life 2013 theme will be “Night at the Movies.” Already plans are being made and fundraisers are being thought up, to help put together next year’s Relay for Life of Lamar County!

This year’s Relay for Life of Lamar County was by far the most successful one, out of the past 10 Relays. Most of the money had already been raised the night before, the total being $50,384. Of course, anyone who is interested can still donate for the Relay up until August 30th!
