NC State Fair & Food Lion Surpass Goal



Food Lion and the NC State Fair passed their goal last Thursday. The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina received 246,779 lbs of food from fairgoers! This was an increase of almost 10,000 pounds over last year setting a new Food Lion Hunger Relief Day collection record! The food donations are equivalent to more than 200,000 meals. According to other record counts, that’s equal to 27 African elephants, 20 monster trucks or a Boeing 747!

Thanks to everyone who participated by contributing to this very worthy cause! Enjoy the last day of the fair today, gates close at 11pm.

LOCAL EVENT: Cameron Village Clip for the Cure

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month



AstraZeneca, which manufactures breast cancer drugs Arimidex and Tamoxifen, founded the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the year 1985. The aim of the NBCAM from the start has been to promote mammography as the most effective weapon in the fight against breast cancer.


Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) (also referred to in America as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM)) is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.


As well as providing a platform for breast cancer charities to raise awareness of their work and of the disease, BCAM is also a prime opportunity to remind women to be breast aware for earlier detection.
