Editor, The Commercial:
I am proud to announce that as of today we have reached our $4,000 Relay For Life Fundraising Goal. Our Luncheon fundraiser raised $418, plus we received two donations towards our goal ($50 and $1000), which gives us a grand total of $4,024.78. People showed up to the event and was just giving money and not even wanting anything to eat. One gentleman stated that he walks in the Relay For Life event every year with his mother and then showed us his “Celebrate Life” shirt he had on underneath his uniform. It truly was an emotional moment for our team.
I know that this effort wouldn’t have been possible without the love and support from our phenomenal employees and citizens who thought it not robbery to come out and support such a worthy cause. I knew God was going to take us above and beyond our goal and I can’t wait to see what the end amount will be once all of our fundraising efforts are done. I really feel that this fundraising event has been instrumental in bridging the gap between the City of Pine Bluff and its citizens. I truly look forward to what the future will bring to our city.
