RepairClinic.com Outreach Committee

RepairClinic’s Health and Wellness committee held a fundraiser luncheon for all our employees yesterday. They were helping our Outreach committee raise money for Relay For Life®.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life® is a fund-raising event that gives people around the world a chance to celebrate the lives of cancer survivors and people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. Relay For Life® raises much-needed funds and awareness to help the American Cancer Society save lives from cancer.

At RepairClinic.com, our Outreach team has been collecting money for Relay For Life® for a number of months now. We held three fund-raising luncheons. RepairClinic donated a large number of items for a popular employee bargain sale (we raised $896 there). Different individuals in our group have been doing their part to inform their families and friends and raise money that way. Our goal is $2000. We are slowly getting there.

For yesterday’s luncheon, we had a healthy spread – a lovely salad bar with lots of toppings. This was on the menu:

  • Fresh, crisp lettuce
  • Baby spinach
  • Several kinds of rolls
  • Meats: turkey, ham, salami
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Vegetables: onions, cucumbers, tomatoes
  • Beans: garbanzo, black and sunflowers seeds

For dessert we had brownies, lemon bars, a number of delicious cookies.

Our lunch was a success and we raised over $345.00 towards our goal.

Relay for Life is taking place Saturday, May 15th and Sunday May 16th. Our team will be there the entire weekend. Please help us with your donation!
