Perdue Farms is top Relay For Life fundraiser

Perdue Farms’ associates in Salisbury were the top fund-raising team for the 2015 American Cancer Society Relay For Life in Wicomico County, leading all fund- raisers for the fifth straight year. Associates contributed $36,193 toward the $225,762 that was raised during the campaign to support the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer. The Perdue team includes associates from its Corporate Office and the Perdue AgriBusiness office in Salisbury.

“Thank you to the Perdue Chicks Relay For Life team for their continued support and commitment toward the fight against cancer,” said Kendall Guy, Wicomico County Relay event chairperson. “Their innovation in creating new and exciting fund-raising opportunities shows their dedication to finding a cure to cancer that benefits our local community.”

The Wicomico County Relay For Life was held Saturday, Nov. 7 at Winterplace Park.

“At Perdue, we have a long history of supporting the fight against cancer through Relay For Life, not only in Wicomico County but throughout many of the communities where our associates live and work,” said Danielle Cordrey, a Perdue Relay For Life campaign coordinator.  Since 1997, Perdue associates have contributed more than $403,950 to support Relay For Life in Wicomico County.

Throughout the year, Perdue associates support Relay For Life by participating in a variety of fund-raising activities, including a designer handbag bingo, the Shorebird Metric Century Bike Ride, a golf tournament, glass-blown ornament making events and luminary sales, as well as Relay For Life.  “We’re proud to be a partner with the American Cancer Society and help end the suffering of so many from cancer,” said Cordrey.
