Bleckley County prepares for 2011 Relay for Life

The Relay for Life wrap-up and kickoff was held in the fellowship hall of Lakeview Baptist Church last week.  It was a time to recognize teams for their accomplishments and start planning for 2011. 

Bleckley County raised $47,465. 

The top earning team was FairyTale Nails who raised $7,243.  Amye's Angels was a close second raising $6,985. 

Linda Warren is this year's chairperson.  She introduced other committee members in attendance.  American Cancer Society senior community manager Heather Gilbert, who works with area RFL events, said that if Bleckley County raised $100,000 this year, she would shave her head.  She had told Houston County that she would do that if they raised $400,000.

This year's Relay for Life will be held on May 6 at the Middle Georgia College soccer field.  For more info or to volunteer, go to www.relayforlife.org/bleckleyga
