Ricky Blues featuring The Monith All-Stars : “Relay For Life” in Brewster on 6/10/2017

By on May 19, 2017 in Show Announcements with No Comments

Relay For Life is a grass roots, community-based, signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Please join Ricky Blues in Brewster on June 10th in bringing communities together to remember loved ones lost, honor survivors of all cancers, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society make a global impact on cancer.

Relay is a team fundraising event where team members take turns walking around a track or designated path. Each event is 6–24 hours in length and each team is asked to have a member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps. Cancer patients don’t stop because they’re tired, and for one night, neither do we.

Relay For Life: Luminaria Ceremony

Each team sets up a themed campsite at the event and continues their fundraising efforts by collecting donations for food, goods, games, and activities. This money will count towards their overall team fundraising goal.

The members of Ricky Blues Band (featuring the “Monith All-Stars”) will be performing live in honor of the event.
