EUREKA- Relay For Life is a few months away but already a North Coast team is raising funds for the cause.
 
The stylist and workers at Elke’s in Eureka kicked off their fundraising efforts today called "Shear For A Cure." Baked goods lined the store and raffle tickets along with clothing were up for sale. The team says they hope to hold a "Shear For A Cure" event once a month until the relay this summer. 
 
50 percent of all services and 100 percent of proceeds from donations collected will go toward their relay team and today coordinators of the event tell us it's their way of giving back to the community.
