This years fourth annual Relay for Life Garden Tour is Sunday July 22 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and features seven gardens three in Bellingham, two in Ferndale, & two in Laurel.
The tour is dedicated to the memory of Pat Brady, who died in December after losing her battle with breast cancer. Brady helped start the state Department of Social and Health Services team that raised money for the American Cancer Society through two fundraisers - the Relay for Life walk and the garden tour. Last year, members raised nearly $8,000.
A donation of $10 per person is requested from those going on the tour.
