ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Customers helped to raise money to fight cancer by eating out at two area restaurants.

On Thursday The American Cancer Society held its Relay Restaurant Night finale at Moe's and Maggie Moo's.

The businesses donated 10 percent of the profit from their sales Wednesday to Relay.

Relay teams also sold raffle tickets for prizes at the stores from five to nine to collect more money.

"A few months ago we did the kick-off, and this is the finale, we'll be doing this for the first year and we'll be doing it from now on," said  Linda Teate, Moe's General Manager.

"We had a lot of people say they heard it on the radio that we were doing it, they wanted to come in and contribute. It helped us and it helps the Cancer Society," said Lew Culpepper, Maggie Moo's Owner.

George Stewart and his wife chipped in to help relay, he's a cancer survivor and has set a goal to give away five thousand wrist bands for a two dollar donation to help Relay's cause.
