A local church hosted a lasagna dinner Sunday raising money to help find a cure for cancer.
Members of the community gathered at Packwood Christian Church to support the congregation's Relay for Life team. People who came out for the event made a free-will donation and got to enjoy a delicious meal at the same time.
The churchâ??s pastor, Frosty Flock, is a cancer survivor and has been hosting the dinner for the past three years. 25-year breast cancer survivor Donna Wolf is the teamâ??s captain. She says the event raisies around $1,000 for their team each year. Four cancer survivors are on their Relay for Life team.
â??We've been touched a lot in this community by cancer,â?? Wolf said, â??and I just would love to see a cure. I would love to see an immunization against cancer, not necessarily for me but for my children and my grandchildren. I hope to live that long to see that.â??
Frosty Flockâ??s team will be walking in the Jefferson County Relay for Life on May 4 at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds located at 2606 W. Burlington Ave. in Fairfield at 6 p.m. If youâ??d like to sign up a team or make a donation itâ??s not too late.
