The American Cancer Society honors its top Relay for Life fundraiser.

Sunnyland Farms has been the top Relay team for the past four years.

At a luncheon Friday, the Cancer Society honored Jane Willson for donating $10,000 in memory of her late husband Harry; the former Chairman and CEO at Sunnyland.

Another award was given to the team leaders for raising about $14,000 last year.

"They are a huge part of our relay and a huge part of this community and relay for life is a community event, so I think it is really important to be here and show our appreciation to them for all they have done for us," Elyse Atha Relay For Life community manager.
