Livestrong Day was a total success. There were about 200 attendees and we raised around $1556.35. We collected many letters, video testimonies, and signatures for our petition and banners to take to our SC government. We managed to recruit new army members and we celebrated survivorship with music, laughter, and yellow foods. We wrapped our day up with dinner at a local downtown restaurant who had been participating in Livestrong Day by having the dinning room decorated in yellow, the servers wearing our Livestrong Upstate logo t-shirts and featuring yellow foods.
We raised money and awareness so I would have to say that "Paint the Town Yellow" was truly a success.
