ASK THE EXPERTS

Are you ready to turn purple?

POSTED: March 23, 2011 4:00 a.m.

Purple is already a color that reminds us of Spring, as well as the Lenten season, but did you know that purple is a color that restores faith and hope to so many who are fighting cancer in our community?

 

Saturday, April 16, we will “paint” Dawsonville and Dawson County purple!

 

Various businesses will be having events throughout the community that will help raise funds and draw awareness to Dawson County’s Relay for Life in our fight to defeat cancer.

 

You will be the “odd business out” if you don’t get on board with this one. There will be bake sales, car washes, car shows, yard sales and some businesses simply plan to donate a portion of their sales to Relay for Life.

 

Your business can participate as well.

 

If you don’t already have a Relay for Life team, we can hook you up with one to donate your proceeds to or you can check out the Relay for Life Web site at www.dawsoncountyrelay.org.

 

Yours truly is doing a yard sale at Kroger and I will be recapping all of the businesses that helped in the paper the following week.

 

Don’t’ miss out!

 

Also, it is not too late to have a team or be a corporate sponsor!

 

Go to the same Web site or call the numbers below for more information.

 

Special thanks go to the teams and individuals below for their efforts in Relay so far:

 

Top Teams:

 

Robinson Elementary with $4,195 so far;

Dawson County High School with $3,535; and,

Blacks Mill with $3,280.

 

Can any of the teams catch up with the schools?

 

Top individuals:

 

Beth Swafford, $897;

Patricia Cavanaugh, $600; and,

Julie Samples, $585.

 

Thank you ladies and come on guys!

 

Dawson Relay has raised more than $20,000 of its goal of $60,000.

 

For more information or to get involved, call Jay Walker, 2011 chairman, at (678) 316-7855 or (706) 216-5500.
