Besides raising money to help the fight against cancer, Relay For Life was also an entertaining event that is for a great cause. Camp said the Look Good Lucy contest was one of the onsite fundraisers that was a hoot. There were many participants in the contest who modeled wigs, hats, etc. and all were donated to Atmore’s loaner closet at Greenlawn Home Health Care.
