Doctors serving food--it's not something you hear everyday but a fundraiser held in Greenville forced doctors to ditch the white coats and pick up an apron.
Relay for Life held its fourth annual fundraiser at Golden Corral in Greenville where docs trade in their scrubs for actual scrubbing. Clearing dirty dishes and filling up glasses were just some of the duties these doctors performed Tuesday night.
About a dozen doctors from Pitt County participated in the event. While some admit it was hard work, many of them enjoyed getting out of the office for a good cause. Dr. Richard Shultzaberger says, "We're used to seeing patients all day and now here we are waiting on tables. But, it's for a good cause, we raise a lot of money for cancer. We get to see our patients come out and everybody has a good time."
Between the doctors tips and items sold at the door--the event raised over $1,200 for the American Cancer Society.
