The event will include games, a silent auction, raffles and live music. When the sun sets, a luminaria ceremony will begin, which will have bags lit in memory or honor of someone how has battled or battling cancer.
Cancer survivors who attend will receive a free t-shirt and enjoy a reception for themselves and a caregiver.
Funds raised from Relay For Life events allow the American Cancer Society to attack cancer in dozens of ways, each of them critical to achieving a world without cancer.
