Relay for Life Violet Ball

 Area residents are invited to an elegant evening of food and entertainment as the Fair Lawn and Glen Rock chapter of Relay For Life kicks off its fundraising season at the Violet Ball at The Brownstone. Proceeds from the event will benefit the American Cancer Society (ACS); Relay For Life is the organization’s signature fundraiser and a major community-wide program.

The Violet Ball will include music, dancing, recognition of cancer survivors and caregivers, door prizes, raffles and a silent auction. Guests will also learn about ACS-funded research and support services which are underwritten in large part by monies from Relays around the world. Dress is smart casual or cocktail attire and attendees are encouraged to add a splash of purple, the Relay theme color. Tickets are $75 each with early-bird pricing of $65 each, with additional presale discounts for a pair by September 15; tickets are at https://RFLFL.Ticketspice.com/violetball.

Event sponsors to date are: Academy Spine & Physical Therapy, LLC, Columbia Savings Bank, PediatriCare Associates, Simply You Hair Studio & Spa, and The Brownstone.

This fiscal year’s Relay will be held overnight on May 30-31, 2020 at Dobrow Athletic Complex on Harristown Road in Fair Lawn, on the Glen Rock border; each year the chapter alternates locations between the two towns. During Relay, team members take turns walking around a track continuously to signify that cancer never sleeps; teams also set up themed campsites and participants enjoy entertainment, games and activities throughout the 12-hour event.

 

Relay is staffed and coordinated by volunteers from the community. Individuals, families and local companies are encouraged to form teams to help raise money for the American Cancer Society.
