We’d like to thank everyone for their support and sponsorship of the 2016 Laurel Run! Without your kind contributions none of this would be possible. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU! For those already thinking about next year’s event it’s already being planned and will take place July 14-15 in 2017. See you then!

2011 Newspaper Sales

Volunteers and Laurel Run supporters turned out in droves July 6, 2011, for the annual sales of the “Laurel Run” edition of the Observer newspaper.

For the fifth straight year, the Observer printed a special edition of the paper, with articles about this year’s Laurel Run. More than 50 volunteers fanned out across the Northern Chautauqua County area to sell the papers between 6:00 and 9:00 a.m.

Preliminary figures show that more than 1,900 papers were sold, raising some $2,250. After expenses were covered, Laurel Run netted about $1,822.

TRC Foundation and the Laurel Run planning committee extend their gratitude and appreciation to Publisher John D’Agostino and his staff at the Observer for printing the special edition; to our volunteers for waking up early to sell papers; to those businesses and municipalities that allowed us to sell papers at their locations; and of course all those people who bought a paper, especially those who donated money on top of the $1 selling price.
