Making Strides event kicks off fundraising

The 10th annual Washington County Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is scheduled to kick off at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 7, at Salem Central School. Come and enjoy a beautiful autumn walk on scenic back roads, while raising funds and awareness for breast cancer.

“Bank Night” will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 3, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Salem town clerk’s office, for those teams who would like to turn in their donations early and avoid the registration lines on Sunday.

New to our event this year will be awards for most unique apparel and best decorated home or business. We would like to turn the county pink the week leading up to our event. Please email a photo of your home or business to [email protected], if you would like to be included in the contest! We will also have our usual awards for most money raised by an individual, a team and a fundraising event.

Congratulations to the Salem Tavern Team for raising $900 at their bake sale and raffle! Don’t forget the upcoming “Pink it Up” craft and bake sale on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Two Top Hairstyling, 1 Park Place, Cambridge. To donate craft items, call Gail at 677-5780 or email [email protected] for more information.

It’s not too late to donate an item for our pink ribbon auction. Please contact Cindy at  854-3969 for more information.

We are once again holding a bake sale during the event. Donated items may be dropped off the day of the event. We will also have a drop off spot for nonperishable food items for Salem’s food pantry.

Please support the Stewart’s ice cream promotion at the Argyle, Cambridge and Salem stores. During the week of Oct. 1-7, purchase a black raspberry, cotton candy or strawberry frozen yogurt cone and breast cancer research will receive a portion of the proceeds.

Local favorites Al & Kathy Bain and Wendy Bordwell will once again be providing music during the Making Strides event.

Call Elaine Gibb at 854-3760 with any questions regarding the event or email her at [email protected].
