Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

Re­lay for Life teams across the Town­ships are fin­ish­ing up their fundrais­ing drives, all in prepa­ra­tion for the

Re­lay for Life all-night walkathons that take place in larger towns like Ma­gog, Coat­i­cook and Sher­brooke. Here in Stanstead, a new Re­lay

for Life team has planned their big fundraiser to take place this Satur­day af­ter­noon, be­gin­ning at 3:30, at the Stanstead En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre.

“We’ll be hold­ing a Bowl-a-thon fol­lowed by a sup­per with the live

mu­sic of Lise Flan­ders. It will be all-you-can-eat pasta and peo­ple can build their own dish, choos­ing the pas­tas they want and the kind of sauce,” said Nick Wood who is on the new team along with Julie Cloutier and Amelie Lagueux. The sup­per will be fol­lowed by an Af­ter Party with DJ Smitty from 10:00 to clos­ing time. “All the money raised will go to­wards the he added.

“We al­ready have four teams for the Bowl-a-thon and there is room for four more,” said Mr. Wood. The top three teams will re­ceive gift cer­tifi­cates from lo­cal mer­chants while the win­ning team will also have their names en­graved on a tro­phy. “We plan to make the Bowl-athon an an­nual event.”

Any­one is wel­come to at­tend the sup­per, not just the bowlers, and tick­ets are a lit­tle cheaper if bought ahead of time. Tick­ets for the sup­per and live mu­sic will also be avail­able at the door.
