Relay kickoff was a success

The Feb. 9 Relay for Life Kickoff Party was a great success due to all of you who contributed door prizes, raffle prizes, food, beverages, tables, gifts-in-kind and other donations. What a great community we live in. Businesses in South Lake Tahoe, Meyers and Nevada donated very generously. We had more than 40 contributors as well as great coverage in the Tahoe Daily Tribune and the use of the Boys & Girls Club facility for the kickoff venue.

The kickoff was well attended by almost 100 people including families, American Cancer Society professionals from Reno, Carson City Relay for Life organizers, local RFL team captains and volunteers and other interested community members. Boys & Girls Club members helped decorate in our “Hello, Tahoe” theme. The food donations were well received and added to our success. Our informational and inspirational program was interspersed with door prizes and raffle prize drawings. A good time was had by all. We were complimented by the ACS representatives on our turnout and organization.

The kickoff committee is very grateful for your contribution to the party’s success. We want to assure you that your donation was used, that your name was displayed and announced, and that all gifts were used for the purposes intended.

Again, thank you so much for your help in making our party a success. Know that you helped in the fight against cancer by getting us ready to raise funds and awareness in our community with our Relay for Life at Kahle July 22-23.
