Summary of project Used as a Fundraiser for the Relay for Life event hosted by the American Cancer Society. We set up a table in the student center of our university and had a large container of jellybeans. People donated a dollar for cancer research to guess the amount of jelly beans in order to get a chance to win an easter basket filled with candy, gift certificates donated by local businesses, etc. We raised close to $40 dollars.
