First Bank of Jasper "Socks it to Cancer" in Two Relay for Life Events

Jasper, Ala - First Bank of Jasper supported two Walker County Relay for Life for the American Cancer Societyevents by creating two teams.

Beth Tackett, Assistant Manager of Dora Branch, served as captain for the Cordova and Dora branches in the East Walker Relay event, while Jackie Gilbreath, Business Development Manager, led the other five offices in the Jasper event.

The relay teams used a theme of “Sock it to Cancer” and featured Sock Monkey graphics to generate a combined total of $10,291.66 through bake sales, Fun Food Friday breakfasts and lunches, a cake auction, t-shirt sales, and team member donations. The Dora/Cordova team raised the second-largest amount in the East Walker event with a total of $4,227.96. The Jasper/Curry/Carbon Hill team raised $6,063.70 and came in first in the Large Business category for Walker County.

Together, the two teams generated approximately 10% of the more than $100,000 raised by dozens of participating teams.
