SGBC Raises Over $4,000 for Relay for Life
Turner County's Relay for Life was a great success. SGBC received the award for the most money raised by a business and also the overall award for Turner County. The 2009 fundraising goal was $3,000; however, $4,340 was raised for the American Cancer Society.
"It was so great how all the SGBC branches pulled together to support Turner County in our fundraising efforts," said Melba Brown, Chairman of the Turner County Relay for Life Committee.
"Turner County's Relay was the most organized Relay event I took part in this year," said Amy Mercer, Community Manager for the American Cancer Society. "I was so happy to see such a large turn out and want to thank the SGBC team for all they did to get the community involved. I look forward to the opportunity to work with them again next year!"
SGBC members serving on Turner County's Relay for Life committee were Melba Brown, Joy Carter, Mika Cauthen, Pam S. Carter and Wanda Bell. Other members of the committee were Donna Waters and Jonathan Perry.
