TPNB Millbrae Staff at Relay For Life

The TPNB Millbrae Staff recently participated in Relay for Life. Relay for Life Millbrae is a 24 hour fundraising event sponsored by American Cancer Society  that helps the community celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. There were a total of 24 teams and 172 participants, each team setting up tents for overnight.  Teams sold products such as drinks, cupcakes, or custom jewelry, and all proceeds went to the American Cancer Society. The fun-filled day also included dragon dances, live bands, and a Luminaria celebration dedicated to families and friends who lost a loved one to cancer.  Shirley and Maria from our Millbrae branch volunteered and worked as account verifiers, counting and verifying all the cash and check donations for the day.
