In Relay Donation Totals

By J. Patrick Hall

The Window Auction for a Cause, also known as the Simonton Window Auction, benefiting Relay For Life of Ritchie County took place on Saturday, May 7th, at the Simonton Window manufacturing facility in Ellenboro. 100 percent of the proceeds from the auction goes to the American Cancer Society to help fight cancer.
