Fundraiser > Event celebrates the lives of those touched by cancer

By The Staff

Relay For Life, a weekend to celebrate the lives of those touched by cancer, will kick off Friday night.
“We are celebrating the lives of cancer survivors and their caregivers,” Alan Wadlinger said, who is one of the coordinators of the yearly event.
The evening begins with a free survivor dinner, 5 p.m. at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.
The Hill Stompers will lead the survivors in a victory lap around the park near Ashley Pond. In previous years, the lap was around the pond but due to construction, the celebrators will utilize the entire area. The laps will begin at 6:30 p.m. The relay teams will continue until 10 p.m., then there will be the lighting of the Luminarias. Each bag that is lit bears the name of a person taken by the disease.
The event is in conjunction with the Gordon’s Summer Concert Series, during which bluegrass artist Claire Lynch will take the stage at 7 p.m.
Other activities include a S’mores Party fundraiser, yard sale and other activities to raise money for the cause.
There will be a Birdhouse Silent Auction from 6-9 p.m. Several local artists contributed to the auction, but if there is a must-have birdhouse, it can be bought ahead of time for $100 at Village Arts on DP Road.
