Towne & Country Players help support Relay for Life

This week Towne & Country Players take the entertainment to Heritage Park for the “Relay for Life” fundraiser. Roger DeMange will serenade the volunteers for this special event. Roger is a Versailles native who has been performing since his early teenage years with the family band, ‘DeMange Orchestra’. He continued on to play with the DeMange Band, Take Five, Free Rider, Free Lance, and the folk group at his hometown parish in St Henry to name a few.

In May 1985, Dr. Gordy Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours around a track in Tacoma, Washington, ultimately raising $27,000 to help the American Cancer Society fight the nation’s biggest health concern – cancer. A year later, 340 supporters joined the overnight event. Since those first steps, the Relay For Life movement has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, raising more than $4 billion to fight cancer. Please join Towne & Country Players and Relay for Life in the fight against cancer on July 17th at Heritage Park in Versailles.
