Re­lay For Life push

The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS -

Fif­teen-time re­lay for life par­tic­i­pants, team Liv­ing and Giv­ing will host a char­ity gala day on Sun­day to help it reach its $10,000 fundrais­ing tar­get.

Bat­tling team leader and breast can­cer sur­vivor An­nette Brook has been lead­ing the charge she hopes will see the team, made up of fam­ily mem­bers and friends, re­tain its ti­tle of top Re­lay for Life fundraiser. Liv­ing and Giv­ing was crowned with the hon­our at last year’s event, hav­ing raised $7700 be­tween 14 team mem­bers.

‘‘Peo­ple are won­der­ful – you have no idea,’’ An­nette says.

The team fundraises all year round for Re­lay For Life, and its cur­rent tally sits at about $6000.

An­nette says she hopes the week­end’s gala will take them to the $10,000 goal.

A wide range of goods have been do­nated for the event, and An­nette says gala items are be­ing sought right up to the day it­self.

The gala is this Sun­day at Palmer­ston North’s Can­cer So­ci­ety base, Ad­dis House on Ruahine St.

Gala-go­ers will find fur­ni­ture, clothes and books for sale, as well as bak­ing, sausage siz­zles and face paint­ing.
