Relay for Life Finish the Fight picnic is Thursday July 24

Back To Front Page

The theme of this year’s Relay was “Finish the Fight!” With that in mind, the 2014 Relay for Life of Duneland Committee has decided to finish the Relay to Finish the Fight and host a picnic at Hawthorne Park in Porter this Thursday evening, July 24, from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m.

The 2014 American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Duneland was held on June 28. A storm came through about 6 p.m. that evening, damaging several tents and many of the on site fundraisers as well as this year’s silent auction, sending many relayers home to safety.

The remaining relayers were moved inside to the small gym and halls of the Chesterton Middle School. It was decided by ACS staff on site and the committee to call the Relay off after a Luminaria Ceremony in the halls.

The committee is asking a donation of $5 per person or $10 per family for this picnic.

The committee will provide hot dogs on the grill and potato chips. There will be sides and desserts donated by Relay participants to share as well.

The silent auction that was cut short at the Relay event will be completed and the evening will end with the always touching Luminaria Ceremony.

Please join together in the park to continue to raise money to finish the fight against cancer!
