I’m baaack PEEPS!

This is a BIG year to celebrate, 5 years Breast cancer free & 1 year Bladder cancer free! WAHOO!

So lets plan to make this a top fundraising year for Jawa’s Boob Crew! We will continue to make a difference by teaming up to participate in the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life which is being held Saturday May 30th thru Sunday May 31st 2015 at the Orange Fairgrounds, 525 Orange Center Road, Orange. Look for the big white tent again!

At the event, our team will camp out overnight and take turns walking around the track to raise money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. It’s so easy to participate, just come when you can, walk some laps, get some hugs, take some pics and have fun! See the great ideas the kids have to raise funds!

Please join our team and/or consider helping us to reach our $6,000 goal with your generous donation of any amount. Saving lives from cancer starts one team, one participant, and one dollar at a time. We look forward to seeing many of you there. And don’t forget to purchase a Luminaria bag to honor or remember your loved one. They can be purchased thru the link on my personal page or at the event.

Much Love, Angela, Darrin, Natalie and Adam Booth :o)

IMG_0536Friday night’s Coaches Vs Cancer Night at Amity featured some great basketball action from both the girls and boys varsity teams as they went up against Shelton in the annual cancer fundraiser.

All proceeds from ticket sales went to the Amity Relay for Life in honor of Amity High School security guard Lorie Tamaro who is battling cancer.

The Spartans and Gaels both hit the court determined to win this SCC Housatonic Division game, they kept the score fairly tight flip flopping the lead, often within 2 points of one another.

Everyone played well, with impressive rebounds and hook shots, the first quarter had Amity in the lead 13-11, at the half Shelton edged out Amity 29-28, the third quarter belonged to Amity at 44-43, but in the end, Shelton reigned supreme squashing the Spartans hopes for the win, ending the game at 56-66.

Shelton’s biggest scoring contributions came from juniors Matt Terrasi with a game high 21 points, followed by Casey Belade with 17 points for the Gaels.

Amity’s top player, also a junior, Chris Winkel racked up 15 points, followed by senior captain Brett Southworth with 12 points.

Amity’s season record is now 2-5.

On Monday, the Spartans face the always tough Cheshire team in Woodbridge at 7 p.m.

The 2014 Relay for Life saw nice weather on Saturday. A few dark clouds threatened to ruin the day, but everything went well.

The crowd seemed a bit smaller this year, more adults than in past years, which pleased the committee members, but the question remained — would the 2014 BOW Relay For Life meet its fundraising goal of $100,000?

Here are some photos from earlier in the day prior to the opening ceremonies.

The 2014 Relay for Life of BOW takes place this weekend at the Orange Fairgrounds. The goal is to raise $100,000 for the American Cancer Society. So far teams have raised $74,932.94. If you cannot attend the Relay, visit the Website and make a donation.

In the morning the committee members and other volunteers will arrive and begin setting up.

The larger crowd will come to the fairgrounds at noon and teams will set up their tents and campsites. All participants are asked to bring 3 canned goods that will hold down the Luminary bags and after the Relay will be donated to the Orange Food Bank.

Teams will sell a variety of items from crafts to food along the walking track. Luminary bags will be sold for $10 each. Purchase one in support of someone you love who is battling cancer, is a survivor or who has lost their battle with cancer.

The “Kids Care” are will be open from 5 to 7 p.m. Children will be treated to crafts, cotton candy, popcorn, face painting and a bounce house.

Opening ceremonies begin at 6 p.m. This year’s Relay for Life Honoree is Amity Student Assistance

Purple Relay Balloons float around a supporter’s mailbox on Grassy Hill Road.

The Relay for Life Committee introduced the Paint The Town Purple program this year. For just $5, supporters received a purple mylar balloon, tied to his or her mailbox today.

All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society through the BOW Relay for Life.

The inaugural year often is tough for any program, but we hope that next year Orange will see a sea of purple instead of the splashes of color that is out there now.

The Committee thanks everyone for their support.

The 2014 BOW Relay for Life will take place on Saturday, May 31 through Sunday, June 1 on the Orange Fairgrounds.

So far 54 teams and 334 participants have raised $27,168.
