NEW GLASGOW — Pictou County Relay for Life is getting ready for this year’s event, first with a team kick-off party.

The event will be held Saturday at Summer Street Industries from 2 to 4 p.m. with live music featuring Hangman.

“We wanted a way to show the teams that the committee is committed to their success,” says leadership chair Janine Linthorne.

“This event will give teams a fun environment to come ask questions, grab their team kits, get ideas, purchase luminaries, hear about the new venue, meet our community champion and win prizes.”

Teams who register at the Kickoff Party or pop in to pick up their kit if already registered will be entered to win the following:

• An opportunity to host a barbecue fundraiser at Kent Building Supplies, 60 Lawrence Blvd, Stellarton, Kent provides all barbecue materials.

• Barbecue slots at Sobeys

• Dinner for two at Pictou Lodge

There will be info tables set up with finance and fundraising ideas, teams will be able to sign up to take advantage of Saturday afternoon tables at the Highland Square Mall. The committee has taken care of filling out the forms and booking the space insurance has been taken care of by the Canadian Cancer Society.

There is still time to register a team or pledge support for another team.
