June 9, 2011 - American Bank of Texas in Leonard led The Leonard Fighters Relay for Life team during the county wide event on Friday, May 27 at Warrior Stadium in Bonham.
The team had a few fund raisers before the relay event, the purple potty and the skunks, and sold brisket sandwiches the night of the event. So far the team has raised $2,032.50 to date with $632.50 being raised the event night. The Leonard Fighters goal was $3,000 and it is not too late to contribute toward that goal. Those wishing to contribute may do so at the Leonard branch of American Bank of Texas - ask for Brandi Treadway. She will make sure all contributions get turned in to Relay for Life and is credited to The Leonard Fighters. The collections will be closed out in August.
Twenty people from Leonard and other American Bank of Texas branches took turns walking the track to help raise the funds and took turns selling the sandwiches.
There were 720 participants on 35 teams and the recorded total for Fannin County Relay for Life is $65,378.94.
