Paint Your World Purple Survivor Luncheon
Sunday, June 5, 2 to 5 p.m.
If you have had cancer 30 minutes or 30 years, you are a SURVIVOR!!! You are encouraged to register with The American Cancer Society as a survivor by calling Ernie Copper at the Lawrence/Beaver County Cancer Society at 724-654-5577.
We will be celebrating our local cancer survivors during a luncheon held in their honor at the Wurtemburg-Perry Fire Hall on State Route 488 in Ellwood City on Sunday, June 5, 2016 from 2 to 5 p.m. There is no cost to survivors and guests for the event and along with an excellent lunch prepared by the Fire Hall Ladies Auxillary, there will be games, a basket raffle and prizes. If you are experiencing a cancer struggle or have been free for many years you are invited to attend this event. The American Cancer Society wants you to show the community that the survivor shirt can cover the whole planet Earth with the strength, hope and courage of each success story in a beautiful shade of purple. Come join and be a part of the purple paint, then attend the opening ceremony of Relay For Life at Helling Stadium on Saturday, June 11 at 1 p.m. in your purple of pride and honor! Look for our butterfly, get the clues when you come in, tell us your story, become part of the national story.
Paint Your World Purple Relay For Life
Saturday, June 11, Noon – Midnight
It is finally here- Ellwood City’s Relay For Life at Helling Stadium starting at noon! Come and help us paint the world purple, enjoy the Star Spangled Banner sung by our own Civic Chorale, cheer the purple paint covering the world survivor lap, watch the tumbling of the Lincoln High School Cheerleaders, an exercise demonstration, a balloon release (weather permitting) after survivor lap and listen to the music by local bands from our community.
As always, luminary bags will be on sale up until 8 pm. The basket raffle (Chinese Auction) will be in full swing also until 8 p.m. with winners announced after the Luminary Service ending at 10:30 p.m. The Luminary service starts at 9:15 p.m. with music, poems and reading of the names. Teams throughout the day will be selling things and offering games to raise team money and our concession stand will have food and beverages to take care of the hungry participants. During the day after the survivor celebration, the children will have face painting and fun activities to do. Stop by and get the clues at the entrance as to where our butterfly will be hiding many times during the day then return it for your picture and a brief story to become part of a mural on the international level. Pray for lovely warm weather and come out to show your support of the battle against cancer. We are slowly winning the fight! Hope to see you there.
