Sale to benefit Relay for Life

Sep 02, 2014

Aeron Lifestyle Technology is having a fundraising yard sale to benefit Jefferson County Relay for Life 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday in the business’s parking lot.

Items for sale include clothing, household goods, furniture, toys and more.

The Jefferson County Relay for Life, a fundraising event for the American Cancer Society, is planned for 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sept. 27 at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds. The opening season will be at noon. Relay by the Campfire, weather permitting, is planned after the relay.

The committee voted to move the event from its usual spring/summer date as it was becoming an ever-increasing busy time with graduations, weekend-long ball tournaments and festivals.

This year’s theme for the event as well as the American Cancer Society’s motto is “Finish the Fight.” Sixty years ago, one out of three people diagnosed with cancer survived. Today, thanks in part to the work of the American Cancer Society, two out of three will survive, according to committee member Dawn Bechtel.

Teams and volunteers are always needed and welcomed. For informaiton, visit the website www.relayforlife.org/jeffersoncountyia or contact Kortney Heald at 319-695-3820.
