great entertainment while eating their evening meal.
This year, food will be provided by Waldorf University Food Service with a wide variety of

more. The traditional barbecued pork chop on a stick will also be available and provided by

“We have an amazing community that pulls together to raise funds every year,” said Steve
Lovik, American Cancer Society. “Most of the funds raised in Iowa, stay in Iowa, providing
funding for the Cancer Research Center in Iowa at the University of Iowa Hospital in Iowa City,
as well as the Hope Lodge which houses cancer patients who are in Iowa City for treatment
along with their families. Funds also stay in our communities of North Iowa. The American
Cancer Society helps arrange rides for patients to receive medical treatment and provides
informational resource materials for them.”
The 2019 Winnebago County Relay For Life event is scheduled on June 22, 2019 beginning at
4:00 p.m. on the Winnebago County Courthouse Square in Forest City. To sign up for a team or
