(Deming) – Last Saturday's 8th Annual Celebration of Life cancer support fundraiser exceeded its fundraising goal.
Cancer Support of Deming and Luna County Patient Advocate Joanna Costilla said that as of Thursday, deposits totaled $77,310, surpassing the organization’s goal of $75,000.
And, she said, money is still coming in!
This year's event honored cancer survivors Adam Fofana, Jazmyne Gallosa and Marilyn Hill. And the largest team participating, the Red Rovers, were walking to honor Carol Viramontes.
All money raised from the annual event goes to Cancer Support of Deming and Luna County to assist local cancer warriors.
