East Mississippi Electric Power Association is gearing up for its 6th Annual Shoot For A Cure scheduled for Thursday, March 28 at Binachi Shooting Sports in Lauderdale County. Last year, EMEPA employees and supporters raised over $20,000 for the American Cancer Society through this premier fundraising event. EMEPA’s Relay For Life team has been recognized as the top fundraising team at Relay For Life of Lauderdale County for three years in a row with hopes to raise even more in 2019.
In addition to raising needed funds for the American Cancer Society, this year, a portion of money raised will also go to directly benefit cancer patients in our local communities through the Anderson Cancer Center’s Cancer Patient Benevolence Fund.
“Though we fully support the American Cancer Society in their efforts to raise money to fund research to find a cure for cancer, we also want to show our support to the friends and neighbors in our community battling this terrible disease,” said EMEPA Chief Executive Officer Randy Carroll. “By donating a portion of the funds raised to both Relay For Life and the Cancer Patient Benevolence Fund, we are able to support both.”
In addition to the Shoot For A Cure event, EMEPA will be raffling off a Remington 870 7-round, 12-gauge Tactical shotgun donated by Thomas Gun and Pawn in Meridian. Tickets are $1 and can be purchased at any EMEPA office.
