The Relay for Life of Rowan County did not meet its goal, but hope the community will pitch in to help it raise the needed funds.
The Relay for Life event was held at the Rowan County fairgrounds May 13-14 with a goal of $400,000.
ěIt was in most ways a wonderful and successful event, but the Rowan County goal has not yet been met. There is money still out,î said Mary Knapp, who is in charge of publicity.
Knapp said Relay needs about $50,000 to meet the goal.
The money raised benefits the American Cancer Society to help fund research, provide education and support to those with cancer.
The following are events planned to help meet the Relay goal:
Poker Run, Saturday, beginning at Tilley Harley Davidson, at 653 Bendix Drive, Salisbury, with registration from 9 a.m. to11 a.m. The cost is $20 per bike and $10 for an additional passenger with pre-registration at $15 per bike and $5 per additional passenger.
The poker run is a round trip from Tilleyís to Morrow Mountain, with the last bike out at 11 a.m. and the last bike back by 3 p.m. There will be hot dogs and hamburgers available at Tilleyís following the run. The event will be held rain or shine. There will be door prizes, prizes for best and worst hands and a 50/50 drawing. The public is welcome to attend and can buy a poker hand.
For more information, contact Frances at 704-603-4168 or fmorrisx1@netzero.com or Beth at 704-232-3866.
Win a 2011 Mustang, tickets for a drawing to win a Saleen SMS 302 Mustang are still available for $50 per ticket with the odds of winning are 1 in 1,300.
The drawing will take place when all the tickets are sold. The value of the car is $64,795.
For a ticket, contact Frances at 704-603-4168 or fmorrisx1@netzero.com.
