Relay for Life Meets Goals

The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life drew 500 people in 16 teams for the overnight event April 26-27 to the Boulder City High School track, and raised more than $36,000. The night was filled with music, games, and, most importantly, a group of individuals gathering to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Part of the money raised stays here in Boulder City to fund the Cancer Closet which provides free supplies for those who have cancer. Local sponsors included Albertsons, Jack’s Place, The Dillinger Food & Drinkery, Evan’s Old Town Grille, Dave Olsen, Chamber of Commerce, City of Boulder City, Boulder City High, The Rainbow Girls, Sunrise Rotary, Boulder Dam Brewing, Boulder Dam Credit Union and Qwest Diagnostics.
