The Sweet Potato Queens, who have raised funds for Relay for Life for the past 18 years, are having their annual dance to support the new Novant Health Wallace Cancer Center this year.
The Sweet Potato Queens are a fun-loving group of spirited women who are serious about raising money to fight cancer — you can recognize us by our red wigs and tiaras. Organized in 2001 as a Relay for Life team, the Queens raised more than a quarter of a million dollars for the American Cancer Society. This year our team of 25 women will be raising money for the Wallace Cancer Center, a comprehensive facility that will meet all of a cancer patient’s needs under one roof.
