On Monday, April 1, Relay For Life Court Jesters will be at Theo’s Courtyard (Coney Island) making calls to raise money for the American Cancer Society Relay of Life of Guernsey County. The Fools event will run 10:00am until 2:00pm. During the event, Theo’s will donate all Coney Hot Dog sales to benefit Relay.
Court Jesters (the Fools) will be working to reach King or Queen Jester status. To reach this goal, each Jester will need to raise $1000 for Relay. Volunteers who reach the $1000 personal goal will receive a keepsake crown and special recognition on the 2013 Relay t-shirt.
Recently, the Cambridge-Guernsey County Health Department reported that in 2012, 75 people died from cancer in Guernsey County. Cancer was the second leading cause of death in the county. The American Cancer Society and Relay For Life team members want to reduce that number. That is why volunteers are willing to be Fools for a day.
Money raised by the Relay For Life event is used by the American Cancer Society to support research aimed at developing better and more effective cancer treatments and diagnostic tests that can catch cancer early when it can be treated more effectively.
When a Fool calls you, be generous. Your donation may help save a life.
