The Duke It Out team raised $843 from Act4Murder's pirate-themed dinner theatre at Foxwood Country Club. Relay team members dressed as pirates and served guests a three-course meal during the performance. Many of the 59 attendees went home with door prizes, and all attempted to solve "whodunit."

Crestview's Relay For Life effort comprises 35 teams, according to its website. Duke It Out, which includes retired and current civil service employees at Duke Field on Eglin Air Force Base, has been a participant for 14 years, event organizer Laurie Klausutis said.

The cause is close to her heart.
