BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Bridgewater-Raritan High School student members of Relay for Life recently ran a bake sale at ProtecHockey Ponds Ice Center, in Piscataway.

Junior Anisha Sahni, the president of the local chapter of Relay for Life, worked with a number of volunteers to raise funds, make and collect the baked items and organize the sale.

Students in the club said Dorothy Lu was responsible for getting the event approved at the center, and she baked and decorated more than 100 Christmas cookies. She also, they said, was a key performer at the figure skating Christmas spectacular.

Aubrey Bellaran and Anthony Brach came to support and keep the activities moving.

Joe Bucchino, the general manager of Protec, allowed the young students to use the prime location. Protec staff was supportive and helpful to arrange the chairs, table and move the large display boards to create space for the volunteers on a busy day.

The day and timing of the bake sale aligned with the Holiday Performance by the figure skaters. The moment was just right and sale of the cookies, muffins, and cupcakes was brisk among the performers and their families and friends.

Christine Romeo, coach and teacher from BRHS, was pleased to see her guidance and encouragement made the efforts a great success.

A total of 100 percent of the proceeds were donated to The American Cancer Society.

The next event is being planned for May 18, with an all-night walk-a-thon to be held at Duke Island Park.
