Approximately 60 people turned out for the official unveiling of the “Cuffin’ Cancer” cruiser to the public by the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) on Tuesday evening.
Sheriff Fred S. Clark thanked those in attendance for coming out to the Halifax County Fairgrounds and for helping support the Halifax County Cancer Association.
“I truly appreciate all of you who came out in support of the Halifax County Cancer Association as well as the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office. This is truly a great cause since most everyone’s lives have been impacted by cancer,” said Clark.
Deputy Dustin K. Francis also thanked attendees and sponsors of the HCSO Cares “Cuffin’ Cancer” project for all of their support of the HCSO as well as the Halifax County Cancer Association.
“The Cuffin’ Cancer project would not have been possible without the support of numerous sponsors. Please support the businesses that helped to make this project possible,” Francis said.
The Rev. P. A. Medley from Staunton Baptist Church in Long Island offered blessings for the “Cuffin’ Cancer” project, Halifax County Cancer Association, Sheriff Clark, his employees, all those in attendance and the community.
“Cuffin’ Cancer” shirts are available at the Halifax County Fairgrounds for $10 each and sweatshirts for $25 each.
All proceeds from the “Cuffin’ Cancer” project will be donated to the Halifax County Cancer Association.
