The 25th annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Redwood County committee and teams held a wrap-up meeting Aug. 13.
Fifty-two cancer survivors registered during the evening of Relay For Life, which was held July 13 at Gilfillan.
The silent auctions raised a total of $1,888.
There were about 1,260 luminaries lit.
Taking part in the supper were 288 people.
The total net of the Relay For Life was $58,246. However, more donations were turned in later, so final money totals for the event, some teams and some individuals will be changed from those listed. The last day of the fiscal year is Aug. 31.
There were 12 teams. There is no longer a limit as to how many members can be on a team. Teams ranged from one member to 18 members this year.
Ten teams turned in $1,000 or more.
The top five teams were: Banking On A Cure with 18 members raising $21,136, Farming For A Cure with 11 members raising $9,570, Erasers with eight members raising $6,779, Many Working for A Cure with six members raising $6,618 and Pullin’ Together with five members raising $5,212.
