Tanimura & Antle, Salinas, Calif., raised more than $170,000 for cancer research in the annual Relay for Life event.
Tanimura & Antle has supported the American Cancer Society for 14 years, according to a news release.
The company does different fundraisers every year to help raise money for Relay for Life. This year the Relay for Life committee created the George Tanimura Relay for Life Round Up, according to the release.
Sponsors could purchase tickets in honor of a family member or loved one who has fought cancer.
“We were able to bring together business partners, employees and family members to celebrate in the name of raising money for cancer research,” said Priscilla Jackson, Relay for Life team captain, in the release.
This year at the annual Celebration of Life fashion show, Tanimura & Antle was given the first annual Spirit of Relay award for contributions to the American Cancer Society.
