The DSW/Drury Hotels Relay for Life started in 2011, and has worked our way up to raising around $30,000 a year for the American Cancer Society with $32,000 raised in 2018. Our “small but mighty” team is made up of amazing individuals from several Drury departments including some retirees and a few friends whom are all dedicated to the privilege of raising money to help fight cancer! All year various fundraisers like 10% day at Gordonville Grill, a gun raffle, chili lunch, RADA, etc. are just the beginning of the fundraising!! Our main event is our yearly Dinner Auction held at the Bavarian Halle in Fruitland, MO every March. During this grand event you will have many opportunities to contribute, including Candy Bars/Popcorn (which includes a $10 prize of some kind), a liquor raffle, a big prize raffle, an oral auction, a silent bidding auction, and more!!
This year’s theme is Pirates Of The Cure-Ibbean and is being held on March 16th! A delicious dinner is provided by West End Tavern, and after all the fun you can dance the night away with BitterSweet Fusion Band!!
