"Most teams raised more than they did last year," Patrick said after the event when asked how more money was raised than last year. All the money people had donated to Hurricane Katrina relief did not hinder fund-raising efforts for the Relay for Life, Patrick said. "When people are giving they just give to all the things they are passionate about and there are a lot of people passionate about cancer in Walton County,"
This is the eighth cookbook Patrick has helped produce.
Barrow County has published three cookbooks and Jackson County's other relay - Relay for Life of Jackson County - has published two.
"It's a good representation of Relay, of everybody being able to be a part of something,"
Relay for Life arrived in Jackson County in 1994 and was one of the first relays held in the state.
This year's event was held at East Jackson Comprehensive High School, a lengthy drive for some living in the Braselton and Hoschton area.
"The reason we want to bring it to this side of the county is because Jackson County has grown so much, (and) we're losing people in this community who really need an event for themselves," Patrick said.
