Now that spring is just around the corner, I’d like to update you on some of the events we will be part of this year.
There are some really great causes to get involved with in the area. They can all use volunteers. If you have a couple free hours, give them a call and see what you can do to help out. Stuff goodie bags, fold mailers, donate a gift basket to be raffled, donate a service to the event, or just come support the event by participating that day!
April 17th is the 7th annual Autism Awareness Walk at Nay Aug Park. Last year 1,500 walkers took a step for awareness. To register for the walk call 341-3388. Prior to April 1, 2010 registration is $10.00. Walker receive a Walk T-shirt. Children under 18 are free. A free Post Walk Picnic is held after the walk. Come join us in supporting each child, teen and adult affected with autism. Together we can make a difference! We will be there with the photo booth.
April 25th is a Princess Part for mothers and daughters at Holy Cross High School. There will be vendors as well as some make up artists making the girls look gorgeous! We will be there taking photos!
May 2nd is the 2nd annual Bark for Life. The American Cancer Society’s Lackawanna Unit is holding a Bark for Life at Nay Aug Park in Scranton to raise funds as part of the 2010 Relay for Life. Registration is $10 per dog, $5 for each additional dog.
Fun, food, games, contests, prizes, and more!
For information or to register, call the American Cancer Society at 570.562.9749. We will be here taking photos of the walk as well as individual photos of the pooches!
June 12th & 13th Relay for Life at Memorial Stadium in Scranton.The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length.
If you have an event or know of one that is looking for vendors or volunteers, please let us know! We love getting out and meeting new people and helping good causes!
