"This is our biggest money maker all year," said Cookie Tyler, who was working the sale, "Everyone at the church really donates items."
The Trigg County Relay for Life Team is led by Gail and Jackie Oliver. They have several different fundraisers throughout the year to raise money to help find a cure for cancer. "The reason we do this is because cancer has effected everyone in some way or another," said Gail Oliver.
The garage sale was held at the Cadiz Baptist Church annex. Items that were available for sale came through donations from the church and the community. "Mostly we got donations by word of mouth. If anyone had anything they wanted to donate, we would try and sell it and donate to a good cause," said Gail Oliver.
Other fundraisers for Relay for Life has been keeping the group busy. "We had a barbecue luncheon a few weeks ago and we did good on that," Tyler said.
They are also selling hearts in memory of cancer victims. These hearts will be used as part of the decoration for the tent on the weekend of the Relay for Life walk. On April 17, the Cadiz Baptist Church will be having a Cancer Survivor Recognition Day. The Relay for Life car wash will be held rain or shine on April 30.
The group says that cancer effects everyone in some way or another and many people have been or know a cancer survivor. "We've come such a long way and we can't give up the fight now. Young and old both don't have to die from this disease," Gail Oliver said.
