Dadeville Chamber asking community to Paint the Town Purple

Published 9:36pm Wednesday, April 30, 2014

The Dadeville Area Chamber of Commerce is calling on the community to help it ‘Paint the Town Purple.’

The chamber announced that it will be supporting Tallapoosa County Relay for Life through its Paint the Town Purple fundraiser.

Amy Willis, Dadeville Area Chamber of Commerce board member, said the chamber will raise funds for Relay through the sale of purple bows.

“We have joined in the county celebration of Relay for Life, and we want to bring that enthusiasm for support of Relay to the Dadeville area,” Willis said. “So the Dadeville Area Chamber of Commerce has decided to have a Paint the Town Purple fundraiser where we will sell purple bows for $5.”

Willis said bows can be purchased from the chamber or any board member for those looking to support Relay in its fight against cancer.

“We also encourage any businesses who want to show their support for Paint the Town Purple to do so,” Willis said. “We’re just trying to raise cancer awareness for Relay for Life and what’s going on in our community.”

Willis added bows will be on sale all the way up to the Relay event May 9.

Willis said Relay is a worthy cause for anyone looking to support the fight against cancer and help their community.

“Everyone has a friend or family member that has been affected by cancer. Relay for Life is such a wonderful fundraiser that has raised so much money for cancer research and helped communities by coming up with new treatments,” Willis said. “It is just great to be a part of supporting our community in this. It really does help people, and it really is heartwarming to be a part of that.”
