PAULDING – Going into Saturday night’s “Rockin’ It Out” Relay For Life kickoff celebration at the Paulding Eagles, committee member Jillene McMichael told auctioneer Aaron Timm to plan on about an hour for the fund-raising auction.
What McMichael didn’t realize was that there had been 109 donated items this year, good enough for an event that lasted over two hours and raised a total of $5,300 – over $2,000 more than was raised in last year’s auction.
All told, the evening’s activities raised $5,800 toward this year’s relay, a great sign of the enthusiasm for this year’s Relay For Life, says McMichael.
