Relay For Life social media


Scotland Regional Hospice’s relay team, the Hospice Hearts, is holding a 50s themed 50/50 raffle to help raise funds for Relay For Life.  The theme for the 2022 Scotland County Relay for Life is “Relay for the Ages”, giving participants a fun opportunity to model their fundraising projects, booths, and team apparel after a specific time in history or even the future.  The Hospice Hearts have decided to go all in on the 1950s with it’s “Shake Rattle ‘n’ Roll Away Cancer” fundraising campaign.

“We knew we wanted a 50/50 raffle to be our main fundraising project this year leading up to the event,” shared Deon Cranford, co-captain of the Hospice Hearts.  “Once the ‘Relay for the Ages’ theme was announced last month, it just made since to carry the ‘50’ element of our raffle over into the era that we were going to choose for our campaign.  So now we have a 50s themed 50/50 raffle.”

The Scotland Regional Hospice staff and volunteers will be selling the tickets between now and October 7, the date of the Scotland County Relay For Life.  Relay for Life will take place that evening from 6:00pm until 10:00pm at Scotland High School’s Pate Stadium.

“The drawing will take place around 8:00pm at the event,” Cranford said.  “You do not have to be present to win, but our team encourages everyone to come out to the school that evening and support this wonderful program.”

The 50/50 raffle tickets are $5 each or five tickets for $20.  50% of all proceeds from the raffle will be awarded to the winner of the drawing and the other 50% will be donated to Relay For Life.  You can pick up tickets at Scotland Regional Hospice’s main office (610 Lauchwood Drive in Laurinburg) or by calling (910) 276-7176 to have tickets mailed to you.

In addition to the raffle, the Hospice Hearts are selling luminarias which will line the track in honor or memory of someone who has had cancer or in support of a caregiver. Luminarias are $10 each and can also be purchased at the hospice office or online at  They will also be selling food at the event and taking general donations as well.
