The Kiwanis Club of Elizabethtown in Bladen County has a lot on their plate after they met at Cindy’s Restaurant this month. The group is helping with scholarships, Hurricane Florence recovery efforts and the fight against cancer.

Jeff Futrell, President of the Club welcomed the group of Kiwanians and Key Club members. Under his leadership the club is reaching out in several ways to help the local community and the nation.

Dr. Lisa Bryan, Secretary of the Club announce the progress being made with raffle ticket sales to help the club’s Relay for Life team raise funds for the non-profit to help fight cancer. Bryan said the club needed sponsors and distributed forms for sponsors and rose sales.

“If you would like to sponsor our team or know someone who does, please let me know,” Bryan said. Interested parties may also follow the link: http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR?team_id=2408432&pg=team&fr_id=91432&s_locale=en_US&et=u_qcaYn5QaLHMUFfib0DEQ&s_tafId=2176505
