Fundraisers to start the Relay season!!!

I know we haven't had Kickoff yet to register teams, but many teams are already planning their fundraisers! I will list fundraisers on the right side of this blog as I get them. I have flyers for the fundraisers, and if you would like me to email them to you, just let me know!

On November 2nd, Caralinda's Crew will be holding the 5th Annual Bunco Bash!!! I've have attended before and will be going again, and it is a blast!!! So call your friends and get your tickets now, while they are available! This event may sell out quick!!! I hope to see you there!

Caralinda's Crew also has an iPod they are selling raffle tickets for! Contact Patti Lusk if you are interested in purchasing any!

Nautilus will be having a Chili Cookoff on November 22nd! Sounds like a smokin' good time! And you can purchase raffle tickets to win some awesome workout equipment! So let's get pumped up and support this awesome fundraiser!

Our American Cancer Society staff partners have organized an amazing opportunity for ALL of the teams from all of the Relay's in the Portland/Vancouver! On November 16th, they will be holding the 1st annual "Hope For the Holiday's - Relay For Life Holiday Expo"! This Holiday Expo gives teams a head start on their fundraising while giving shoppers a chance to do holiday shopping AND give back to the American Cancer Society! The Red Lion Inn at Jantzen Beach will be hosting it. If you are interested in selling crafts, jewelry, games, etc... for your team fundraising, this is the place to do it! The table cost is $25 and all you need to bring is your items for sale and decor for your table! They have space for 100 tables and are inviting over 750 teams from the area - so sign up soon! Registration deadline is November 10th! For more information, please contact me, or the ACS staff partner organizing the event, Cheryl Jones. Ph# is 503-795-3971 or
