Fundraising has never been more fun as Iuka Church of Christ plays host to “Breakfast with Disney” from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. Saturday, April 1, at the church.
Children and adults will get to meet Disney characters including Elsa, Anna, Mickey, Minnie, Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Prince Charming, Buzz Light Year, Woody, Belle and Pocahontas.
The cost of the event is $5, which includes two pancakes, sausage and drink — choice of orange juice, milk or coffee.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Tishomingo County Relay for Life.
Event Chair Chuck Clark said he feels this fundraiser will be very popular with the kids. This year’s Tishomingo County Relay for Life will take place on May 5, at Mineral Springs Park in Iuka, beginning at 6 p.m.
This year’s event in Tishomingo County will feature a Western theme — “Give Cancer the Boot.” Clark encouraged all Tishomingo County residents to come and help in the fight that saves lives. He said that the formation of teams is going well, but more are always needed.
“We can always use more teams, sponsors and helpers,” he said.
Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Relay is staffed and coordinated by volunteers in more than 5,200 communities and 27 countries. Volunteers give of their time and effort in order to take action against cancer.
Everyone is encouraged to join the events to bring communities together to remember loved ones lost, honor survivors of all cancers, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society make a global impact on cancer.
