2020 Relay for Life team is working to reach fundraising goal

Virginia Hutcheson

The American Cancer Society has received $175,066 from the Quail Creek Fights Back Relay For Life team since 2010. Thank you to the Quail Creek residents who have supported the team through garage sales, putting and golf tournaments, casino galas, The Women of Quail Creek luncheon/fashion show, and monetary donations. The team raised $33,000 last year and is working to raise that much again in 2020 to bypass the $200,000 grand total.

Thank you to the Quail Creek residents who donated items for the Nov. 9 Relay garage sale. Thank you to those who came to shop and to the volunteers who helped. The team raised $3,680 by selling donated items. These American Cancer Society dollars will go towards the team’s 2020 fundraising goal.

The Women of Quail Creek support the Relay for Life team through their Feb. 18, 2020 luncheon/fashion show by selling table sponsorships, 20/20/60 raffle tickets, and through the raffle baskets and silent auction items. Raffle basket and silent auction donations are now being accepted.

Purchase Table Sponsorships in honor of cancer survivors; in memory of someone who lost their cancer battle; for a business; in family, friends or a neighborhood name, etc. Sponsorships are available for $100, $150, $250, and $500. All but the $100 table sponsorship will also receive track signs at the April 4, 2020 American Cancer Society Green Valley/Sahuarita Relay for Life event at Ranch Resort Park, 15455 S Camino Lago Azul, Sahuarita from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information on sponsorships, donations or Relay for Life, please contact Relay Team Captain, Ginny Hutcheson, at [email protected] To sign up for the Relay team go to www.relayforlife.org/gvsahuaritaaz and click on the Quail Creek Fights Back team.
