Senior-ritas raise money at Relay for Life event
This year was the first year that Primrose of Mankato sponsored a team for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life event.
We were the “Primrose Senior-ita’s” and our theme was a Mexican Fiesta!
Six members of our management & staff, and a few family members and friends made up our winning team! We raised money throughout the year at various events, including our famous bake sale last fall.
Our residents got involved by helping to decorate luminary bags and making personal donations of their own.
The night of the event we sold Nachos and non-alcoholic margarita punch at our booth and tickets for a game of chance to win some fabulous prizes! With all of our combined fundraising efforts and sales the night of the event we raised over $1,400 for the American Cancer Society!
Not only was our team noted at the event as a “Rising Star Team” for our fundraising efforts, but we also took first place in the team site decorating contest!
It was a great success for us, especially being our first year!
We’d like to thank everyone who donated to our team and helped to make it such a great event.
We are already planning and starting to fundraise for the 2014 Relay for Life!
