2007 Relay For Life

The 2007 Relay for Life of Havre de Grace fundraiser for the American Cancer Society was last night, and it was a resounding success. This was only the 3rd year of the Relay in Havre de Grace. In year 1 it took in $20,000. Year 2 totalled $44,000. So far, Year 3 has brought in over $90,000 and counting. I will have a detailed page on the website shortly with more information and pictures about the event. Its not too late to donate. Donations can still be credited to this Relay as long as they are received by the ACS no later than August 25. See the Ten Minas site for details on how to make a donation.

On a personal note, I would like to congratulate my wife, Mary Kay Coughlan, who has been the Volunteer Event Chair of the Havre de Grace Relay since its inception and is stepping down as Chair. She will be leaving the Relay in a very healthy condition with interest at an all time high, and will be passing it off to good hands in Debbie Leodore. Ten Minas (including my wife) will still be involved in future years, and we thank you all for your support. God bless.
