Relay for Life 2020

Date: Tuesday, September 1, 2020
Time: 2:30 pm  to  4:30 pm
Location: Granito Patio

We will have a Go Gold Day event on Tuesday, September 1st on the Granito Patio in order to come together in a physically distanced fashion, announce raffle prize winners, enjoy "grab & go" snacks, and raise funds that specifically support childhood cancer research, prevention, and services.

Due to COVD-19, plans for the Spring 2021 event are still being determined, as all in-person events must adhere to CDC & NYS guidelines.  

Details for the 2021 Relay for Life event will be updated in Fall 2020. Check back soon!
