Festival of Hope fundraiser a success

Dear Editor,

The 5th Annual Festival of Hope took place at the Winnie-Stowell Park on March 7th.

Even with the recent hurricane and the problems with the economy, we had a nice turnout.

Horseshoes For Hope was a big success this year. We raised $240 at the horseshoe tournament.

The garage sale raised $535.00 dollars this year. We sold snow cones, homemade jelly, raffle tickets, various items and had a silent auction. The car show and other fund raisers raised $1433. We had 4 vendors this year that each made a contribution to Relay For Life/The American Cancer Society. We raised a total of $2,200.00 for the American Cancer Society via Relay For Life. We would like to thank everyone who helped make this event possible!
