There’s plenty of action for the Pink Ladies of Sparkling Tiara this week as they prepare to participate in Relay for Life on May 11th at Charlie Daniels Park. Sparkling Tiara places community involvement as a top priority because we love our friends, families, neighbors, and customers. This fundraising event is particularly important for us as we honor the members of our community who have struggled with cancer. We hope you join us for a day of remembrance, education about cancer screening, celebration of survivors, and community fellowship.
According to the official website, Relay for Life began in the mid-80s with the effort of colorectal surgeon Dr. Gordy Klatt. In 1985, Klatt spent 24 hours walking or running around a track: his efforts culminated in his running a spectacular 83 miles and, together with his community, raising $27,000 for his local Tacoma ACS office. Since that time Relay for Life has grown into a meaningful event for communities across America to collaborate and support screening and research for all types of cancer. The 12 hour event includes a survivors lap, a caregivers lap, a memorial lap, a luminaria ceremony, great food, and fundraising activities.
Mount Juliet’s own Relay for Life 2012 is sure to be an incredible occasion. 19 teams of 187 participants are signed up to join in the relay. Sparkling Tiara won’t be hard to find: just think pink! The winners of last year’s “best campsite” award are at it again with their favorite theme color. We’ve spent last weekend working on the campsite and getting everything ready for our visitors. Come by and check out a paradise of pink! We’ll have pink popcorn, cotton candy, sweets, and home-made baked goods for sale (yes – all pink!). All of the Sparkling Tiara Pink Ladies will contribute delicious, charmingly decorated treats. In the spirit of serving our community 100%: we’ll donate all of the proceeds to the cause. Just look for the ladies in the pretty pink t-shirts! We look forward to seeing you there!
Mount Juliet Relay for Life will be held from 6am to 6pm on Friday, May 11th.
