Iberville Parish Relay for Life event coming to COPAC September 24

Staff Report

Less than two weeks remain until an event for Iberville Parish residents to help raise money to fund research and an ultimate cure for cancer.

Luminaria bags are among the ways families and friends can honor a survivor in their life, and support those who are fighting the battle.

The Iberville Parish Relay for Life to benefit the American Cancer Society will be from 6 p.m. to midnight Sept. 24 at the City of Plaquemine Activity Center, 24130 Ferdinand St.

Games, food, music and other fun activities will bring together residents to help attack cancer.

The community can come together through funding, time given and heightened awareness – virtually or in person to make a difference.
