First-time Relay for Life of Homer event chairs Michelle Drake and Michelle Geagel definitely got their feet wet over the weekend. So did the other 185 registered relayers and weekend add-ons, thanks to heavy, wind-driven rain on Friday.
That’s didn’t dampen Homer’s support of the event, which benefits the American Cancer Society, however.
The fundraising goal was $60,000 “and we raised a total of $65,600 and something,” said Drake. Donations will continue to be accepted through August.
