Laura’s Touches

“Laura’s Touches” are given once a month to patients taking chemo or radiation at the Cancer Center to encourage them in their fight. Touches have included cookies from Herb’s, Chamber of Commerce Gift Certificates, fuel cards, lunch from Samy’s, Legacy Cookbooks, and mum plants, just to name a few. The funds to continue “Laura’s Touches” are generated through a silent auction held each year following the Legacy 10K and Spirit 5K races.
