North Pensacola Relay For Life Beats Goal

May 3, 2008


The North Pensacola Relay for Life was held this weekend at Tate High School. The goal for the annual relay event was $97,000, but it actually brought in $111,000.

There are about three dozen teams in the event, including several from the coverage area.

Molino Park Elementary School and Aldersgate Methodist Church from Molino participated in the American Cancer Society fund raiser.

The North Pensacola Relay goal for this year was $97,000. About $85,000 of that had been raised before the relay kicked off. This year’s three dozen teams was about a dozen more than last year.

The theme for this year’s relay was “Cure Cancer…Live Happily Every After”.

Late Friday night, there was a Mz. Relay Contest — a woman-less beauty and talent competition.

At 9:00 Friday night, the Tate High stadium lights were cut and the stadium was lit with the glow of Luminaria bags, representing cancer survivors and victims alike.

    I noticed that there was a James Bolin II, raising money for this worthy event. I’ve been trying to get in touch with an old friend by the name of james bolin who was a police officer for the city of pensacola in the sixties. He used to come to Pensacola buggy works and we had many interesting conversations. I would sure like to hear from James Bolin II if he is kin and knows the man I’m talking about!
