Employees of The Talbot Bank, a member of Shore Bancshares community of companies, came in second place for the top fundraising team in Talbot County, raising a total of $5,624 at the Talbot County Relay for Life which was held on September 19, 2015 at Easton High School. Nearly $39,000 was raised between Relay for Life and Colors of Cancer, to help the American Cancer Society for their cancer programs and research.
A survivor luncheon was also held following with an opening ceremony. Survivors made the first lap to begin the relay event. Various games and activities were enjoyed by everyone throughout the day culminating with an extremely moving luminaria ceremony at dusk. Over a 1,000 lighted luminaria bags glowed in the dark in honor or memory of someone special.
This year marked the 30th Anniversary of Relay For Life and it was the 20th Anniversary for Talbot County Relay For Life. This year’s theme was ‘The 80’s! Look How Far We’ve Come!’ The Talbot Bank employees were the “80’s Rock Stars”. Teams were encouraged to build a car for the Road To Recovery lap. Talbot Bankers placed third for their version of an “El Camino Pick Up”.
