The Bladen County Relay for Life Survivors Gala took place on Monday night at Lu Mil Vineyard and was well attended. Estimates placed the attendance at about 200 people including cancer survivors and their care givers, said Michelle Fisher, Bladen County Relay for Life event chairwoman. Folks were treated to an evening of live entertainment, fun and sharing of stories. The faculty band of East Bladen High School delighted folks while folks engaged in fellowship with one another.
