Evening of Hope Gala a glimmering success
Between the twinkling lights and the shimmering evening gowns, the Laurel Ridge Country Club was glittering brightly Saturday night for a good cause.
More than 100 guests dressed in their best attended the Relay for Live Evening of Hope Gala and enjoyed dinner, drinks, door prizes, raffles, auctions and live music performed by "Tuxedo Junction."
The gala raised about $8,000 to benefit Relay for Life, a volunteer-driven cancer fundraising event of the American Cancer Society. Aside from ticket sales and a raffle, live and silent auction bids supported the cause.
By the end of the evening, the dance floor was filled with couples dancing — but not before the auctioneer had a chance to sell a handmade quilt, wine, fine jewelry and other items.
