“With thanks to Olymel for donating the ham prizes and everyone who helps to support this cause, we are able to donate $1,000 to a great cause that will help all women of this region. The Preeceville and District Lioness Club will present their donation live on a Radiothon being held April 29 and 30. There are 5,000 women in the region that use the equipment and early detection is the best way to save lives,” said Gawrelitza.
