This year’s event is scheduled for June 22nd.

Letters have been mailed out looking for sponsors, and anyone who has not received a letter or wants more information should contact Linda Knop or Debbie Pellett at 712-243-3195. Relay For Life Chairman Carole Schuler said during last year’s event approximately $25,000 was donated by sponsors of the event.
