A lot of different events are happening around us for the Relay For Life.  The Relay is almost a year-round event, really, because these teams work so hard to get fundraising going.  They do everything they can think of to get members, donations and awareness out there.  The actual Relay event isn't until June, but that doesn't mean teams aren't hard at work.

We here at the station have been accepting donations of bears for their yearly bear auction.  My very own sister even went through her precious stuffed bear collection and donated some to the cause.  People have decorated, dressed, and gussied up their bears so that you'll bid on them, and all the money will go to the great Relay for Life.

So when is the actual auction, you ask?  I'LL TELL YOU.  I HAVE THAT INFORMATION.  And I'm not the kind of jerk that would hold that kind of thing back.  I'm a sharer.  Anyway, they’ll have the Bear Auction on Saturday, April 27 at the Best Western Riverboat Room with the buffet starting at 5:30 p.m. and the auction at 6:30 p.m.  It’s $15 a person, or $100 for a table of seven.  All donations go to the American Cancer Society.  For information, contact Nancy at 826-0074 or Jennifer at 221-0337. If there’s no answer, leave a message.

So get beary ready for a beary great cause.
