Provision Team Raises More Than $9,000 for 2014 Relay For Life

By | Culture of Care, East Tennessee, Events, Uncategorized | No Comments

Keep calm and Relay on, as they say! The Provision Cares Foundation team raised more than $9,000 at the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life on Friday, June 13, 2014, at the World’s Fair Park.

The Provision team has worked year-round to raise money for the American Cancer Society’s mission of creating more birthdays for cancer survivors. We have baked brownies, cooked breakfast, washed cars, eaten Petro’s-style chili for lunch and worn jeans on Fridays to raise money for this great cause. We pitched a tent, cooked up ribs, had a baked potato bar and strawberry short cakes. We also had a silent auction to raise additional funds.

The event kicked off with the Opening Ceremony where cancer survivors take the first lap around the walkway and receive special recognition and a very warm welcome. The event continued with live entertainment and great food available throughout the evening. Provision has been a major sponsor and the top fundraising team for this event since joining the Relay For Life of Metro Knoxville in 2010. We have raised more than $80,000! Come and join us for future events and let’s grow that number to $100,000!  Special thanks goes to Ashley Teeters, Chili’s, Trader Joe’s, Costco and PetSafe for their generous donations.
