GMC Valdosta Wins First Place

GMC Valdosta Wins First Place The Valdosta campus of Georgia Military College won first place out of 88 teams in campsite design, this past Friday, May 2, in the Relay for Life for Lowndes County Event. The theme for this year’s event was a children’s book in honor of children with childhood cancer. GMC Valdosta chose Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The campsite featured a candy store, chocolate bars with golden tickets, and candy sculptures and balloons. Volunteers came dressed as Oompa Loompa’s, Violet, and Willy Wonka. Many participants stopped by the site for a photo with Willy Wonka, purchased candy from the candy shop, or purchased a candy bar with a golden ticket hoping to win one of the many donated raffle prizes. Georgia Military College student clubs worked together to raise $2,000.00 for Lowndes County Relay for Life.
