Pinnacle Bank will be selling hot dogs and other concessions from 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. on Friday, April 22 at its Powdersville branch across the street from the Powdersville Fire Department. All of the proceeds will go toward Relay for Life.
Pinnacle Bank Vice President Celia Thompson said the branch employees “tossed around” the idea when they decided to make it a community event.
The idea was actually tossed around among the Powdersville Branch employees and we decided we could make this a community affair to become involved in, helping raise monies for a very worthwhile cause.
“Our personal branch goal is $1,500, and we certainly hope to make this with the delicious hot-dog sale,” Thompson said.
So far, Pinnacle Bank is one of 22 teams participating in the Relay for Life rally, which is slated for May 13-14 from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. at Wren High School. The first lap is for the survivors, the second lap is for caregivers, and then the official relay starts. No one individual has to walk for 12 consecutive hours — just one team member from each team is expected to.
According to the chapter’s website, www.relayforlife.org/northanderson, the chapter has attracted a total of 302 participants and raised just above $10,000. That’s still far from the goal of $40,000, according to Relay For Life of North Anderson County Co-Chair Rhonda Childress.
Concrete Primary School continues to be team that’s raised the most, standing at $2,119.56. The leading individual is Brandi Conner, who has raised $311.
