Relay for Life Bestows Awards

Lauderdale County Relay for Life wrapped up its business for the 2010 event Wednesday.

It finished by bestowing awards on those who made this year's fundraiser a success.

The annual Relay for Life brings in money for cancer research to try to find a cure.

This year, Lauderdale County brought in $280,000, just a little short of its $300,000 goal.

"Our top money raiser this year was A & B Electric. And right on their coattails was Mississippi Power Company. And following right behind them was Rush Hospital," said coordinator Becky Vance. "They always are big money raisers. They have a way. They know how to do it and they get out there."

Vance said a new team this year, Amy's Angels, spent only about a month raising money, but was also among the top contributors.
