ATLANTA, April 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of Georgia held their 20th Relay for Life event April 12, 2019 and raised record-breaking proceeds that were donated to American Cancer Society. Bulls and Bears Radio co-hosts, Steve Champa and Adam Matisko, represented Online Trading Academy Atlanta as the presenting sponsor to help raise donations, raffle cash prizes, and speak on stage. Online Trading Academy Atlanta also sponsored three prior supporting fundraisers: Battle of the Bands, the 5K at Terrapin Brewery and a golf tournament at UGA's golf course.
