Cancer Association receives donation from Standing up for Darke County event


UNION CITY – The Borderline, The Union City Country Club and Baker’s Motorcycle Shop would like to thank everyone who attended and donated to the May 16 Standing up for Darke County event held to help cancer patients in Darke County.

The event featured a poker run, 3-man golf scramble, benefit auction, 50/50 drawing, chicken dinners and door prizes. “With everyone’s generous donations, they were able to donate $3,946 to help cancer patients in Darke County,” said orgainers.

Last year they donated $2,000 to the association. The groups want to thank the local businesses and all who attended and helped in any way to make this so successful. A special thanks goes to Kenny Live, Rance Crane, Dyslexic Funk and The Bobby Crane Band.

The Cancer Association appreciates all donations and is overseen by a volunteer board that determines how donations are to be used, etc. The expenses are kept to a minimum so the bulk of the monies go to the cancer patients living in Darke County. The only requirement to receive benefits is to reside in Darke County and have a confirmed diagnosis of cancer.

The association partners with United Way and is not affiliated with the American Cancer Society or other cancer groups.

If you would like to donate, please send donations to Cancer Association of Darke County, PO Box 781, Greenville, OH 45331. If you have questions, feel free to call the office and speak with Christine Lynn, Director at 937-548-9960.
