The Event Leadership Team convened on Tuesday, June 16 to close out what has been an extraordinary year.
With the restrictions on everyone from the COVID-19 pandemic, the usual public event was cancelled and all fundraising for 2020 was done online or individually. This caused the Event Leadership Team to re-think their goal of $75,000 and lower the annual goal to $25,000.00, which was exceeded!
“This was a great accomplishment, given the restrictions we faced,” said Event Lead Shelley Buchman. “We will now begin planning for our 2021 Elgin Relay For Life.”
Plans for 2021 are to host Relay HopeFest 2021 at Veteran’s Memorial Park on Saturday, April 24, 2021, with other fundraising events leading up to the culminating “Relay.” The first event planned is a golf tournament at ShadowGlen on Saturday, September 19, 2020 that will culminate in a Kick-Off Celebration for Relay 2021.
