Tricky Tray Auction to be Held in Downtown Hawley

HAWLEY, PA: The American Cancer Society’s Greater Lake Region chapter of Relay For Life will be hosting its first ever tricky tray raffle auction. The event will be held in the Great Hall of the Hawley United Methodist Church, 315 Church Street, on Sunday March 29th, 2015. Doors open at 2pm and the event will end at 5pm with the raffle call beginning at 4pm.

“Cancer is not a joke” mentioned Nancy Vignau, Event Chair, “but when the whole community comes together and works as a team, we will make cancer the fool.” The festive event will feature an afternoon of light homemade hors d’oeuvres and lively music, all in a fun and welcoming atmosphere. There will be dozens of different baskets of donated items from local area businesses such as a dinner and show for four certificate from Woodloch Resort, a gift certificate to the Boathouse Restaurant and an Ehrhardt’s Waterfront Restaurant gift basket, among others.

There is no entrance fee for the event and all of the proceeds from the raffles will benefit The American

Cancer Society Relay For Life of the Greater Lake Region, encompassing both Hawley and Honesdale.

“We’re looking forward to having fun at this event” Vignau added, “and we hope to raise awareness for Relay For Life in our community. More than one million people in America will be diagnosed with cancer this year. The more our friends and neighbors know, the harder we fight as a team, the more we can

help create a world with more birthdays.”

 

All ages are welcome to join the event. For more information contact Nancy Vignau at

About ACS Relay For Life:

The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is an overnight community celebration where individuals and teams camp out, barbecue, dance, and take turns walking or running around a track “relay” style to raise funds to fight cancer. At nightfall, participants will light hundreds of luminaria candles around the track in a moving ceremony to honor cancer survivors as well as friends and family members lost to the disease. Funds raised support cancer research, education, advocacy, and patient services in the community.  This year’s event is May 16?17 @ WAHS.
