Relay for Life in 10 more days!!

I'm getting super excited now. Relay for Life is in 10 days!! I want to encourage anyone and everyone to come see what it's all about. The opening ceremonies start at 6:00pm on June 20. Right after that, the survivors do a lap. There is a luminaria ceremony in which the names are read and the bags are lit and stay lit all night. That starts at 9:00pm. Everyone is invited to take part in the silent auction also. There are tons of stuff to bid on and all proceeds of course go to American Cancer Society. If you haven't donated and would like to, you can go to:

http://events.cancer.org/rflnewbergor

From there you can view a list of teams (click on "view teams" on the right hand side of the screen) and scroll down til you see the team you want to donate to (mine is called Ushio Angels). Once you click on a team name you can either donate to the team itself or a specific member of the team (my name is Christie, I'm the only Christie on the team) :)

I hope to see you there. I'll be with my team near the shot put ring. Look me up, I'll be there all night!!
