MICHELLE STYRON/THE GREENVILLE STANDARD
One of the biggest fundraising events for the Butler County chapter of Relay for Life took place Saturday at the Ritz Theatre.
WSFA meteorologist Amanda Curran introduced the 84 lovely ladies that graced the stage for the event this year.
This event has taken place annually for nine years and the Harley’s Angels Relay for Life team has been in charge of the pageant for the majority of its existence.
This year’s organizer, April Langford, said she is very thankful to the parents and participants who have made this fundraiser a success year after year. This will be the last year Harley’s Angels will host the Relay for Life Pageant. However, there is already talk from another group of continuing the event in years to come.
“This event really is a labor of love. I could not bring this all to fruition without the help of many dedicated volunteers, sponsors, supporters and participants. Cancer has touched my life, as it has many others, and I enjoy being a part of a movement that will help eliminate this horrible disease.”
