Raffle benefits Relay for Life of Oxford
● By Steven Hoffman
On May 27, Oxford Borough Mayor Geoff Henry drew the winning name for a raffle that was organized to benefit the Relay for Life of Oxford. The winner of the raffle was J. Gambill, who took home about $175 for having the winning ticket. Henry is pictured with Mary Farkas, Robin Baum, and Marsha Spencer, members of the Curvy Sundancers, one of the many teams participating in the Oxford Relay for Life event that is slated for Friday, June 17 and Saturday, June 18 at the Oxford Area School District track. The Curvy Sundancers members organized this particular raffle.
The Relay for Life of Oxford was the recent recipient of a Citizen Recognition Award because of its efforts in supporting the national Relay for Life campaign. The Relay for Life of Oxford has already raised more than $900,000 in its history for the cause.
