(BEDFORD) - Many thanks from the Lawrence County Cancer Patient Services (LCCPS) for all those who helped with our fundraising tea on April 26.

The very active board helped in so many ways, donating all the food, prizes, tickets, programs and anything LCCPS needed.

LCCPS thanks each lady who set a table and invited friends and all those who came to support them and those who bought items at the silent auction. We also thank Shawna Girgis for the entertainment and they want to thank 1340 AM WBIW, Times-Mail, Copy Trolley and Hair Sensations for publicity.

LCCPS thanks all the businesses in Lawrence County and also outside the county, who donated items for the silent auction. Because everything is donated, LCCPS raised $3,900 for cancer patients in Lawrence County. And LCCPS had fun, food, and fellowship! If you missed this great event, LCCPS will do it again in two years.

The Lawrence County Museum would also like to thank everyone who helped make the 13th annual Brain Games the fun-filled, action-packed success that they were. Sponsors included:

  • Little Theatre of Bedford

Little Theatre provided the perfect venue for the Brain Games, for which they are always grateful.

They would also like to thank all 160 players who volunteered to serve on a team and bravely stepped up to support the museum.
