Austin's BBQ hosts "Relay Restaurant Night"

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Hungry people filled their bellies while helping out a good cause at Austin's Barbeque Thursday night.

The restaurant teamed up with the Dougherty-Lee Relay for Life for "Relay Restaurant Nights." Many restaurants in the area will participate in the event leading up to the Relay for Life.

On the nights they sponsor the event, the restaurant will donate 10% of their proceeds to the American Cancer Society.

"It helps a lot because it gets difficult going around asking people all the time, the same people, would you be willing to donate toward this," explains Richard Stevens, a Relay team captain.

"And when the businesses get involved, it shows a lot of community involvement and shows that the city as a whole was starting to work towards the ultimate goal of finding a cure to cancer."

A relay team also sold awareness bracelets and raffle tickets throughout the night.

The next Relay Restaurant Night will be held at the new Carter's Fried Chicken in Lee County on March 22nd.
