$45,000 in Relay for Life

Almost $45,000 was raised during the annual Relay For Life in Cherry County on Saturday night.

Committee member Sally Conner told KVSH news that they served over 200 people at the kick off supper thanks to the Knights of Columbus.

Connor stated that the venue at the Ecology Park and Swimming pool area in Valentine was great. The shade trees helped beat the heat and the bleachers supplied by the city of Valentine helped with the Auction. The auction, conducted by Connot Brothers Auction Service, raised about $5,000 of the nights total.

Over 650 luminaries were sold to honor family members.

A big thank you to the sponsors, participants and volunteers for making the event a success.
