Relay teams getting creative raising funds

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, April 19, 2000

Three local golfers will attempt to play more than 100 holes between sunrise and sunset next Monday.

The point? Raising money for their Relay for Life teams. Also next week, a trio of Cracker Barrel employees will spend the day rocking on the restaurant's porch to raise money for the event.

Greenville Mayor Ernie Smith will join Cambrian Ridge director of golf Sean Curry and head professional Bryan Reynolds in an attempt to play as many holes on the RTJ course as can be played in a day.

"I don't know how many holes we'll get in, but we're going to shoot for a hundred," said Smith. All three golfers are taking pledges based on the number of holes played. Smith said all money raised from the event will go to the Relay for Life event scheduled for May 5.

Smith represents the City of Greenville team and Curry and Reynolds represent the Cambrian Ridge team. Each golfer hopes to raise $1,000 for his team through donations from the community. To contribute, contact Smith at Greenville City Hall or Curry and Reynolds at Cambrian Ridge.

Rebecca and Scarlett McNaughton, and Dawn Figueroa will hold their second all-day "Rock-A-Thon" on the Cracker Barrel porch next week. They will be taking donations to help the Cracker Barrel Relay for Life team.

Relay For Life is the annual, signature event to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Butler County Chapter president Joan Reynolds said the county wide goal for this year's Relay is $100,000. More than 50 teams

and 500 individuals have registered to participate so far.
