The local Bark for Life’s inaugural event in 2016 included 40 participants and raised more than $2,000. Last year, it attracted 125 guests and 15 vendors and raised about $7,000, Baker said.
“This year I’d like even more guests and raise $10,000,” she said. “The joining of teams and participants will hopefully create a bigger and better turnout.”
Baker, who lost many family members to cancer including her father, said it is important for her to organize the event and help the cause it serves.
“I’ve devoted my time for the past three years to this event and the past eight years to Lakota West Relay for Life in hopes of making a difference in the community,” she said.
