Relay for Life: Team Hope Garden

Team Hope Garden is a Relay for Life team benefiting the American Cancer Society. We started our team in honor of our dear friend, Patty Donnelly, an oncology nurse who was diagnosed with Lymphoma in 2001. In all her 25 years of being a nurse and walking in many charity events for her patients and friends, no one has ever walked for this loving and giving woman until now. Team Hope Garden will be participating in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in Lake Forest, Ca on Saturday, October 1st, 2011 beginning at 10 am at El Toro High School.

Relay for Life is a family-friendly event and is for everyone who wants to participate… whether you can only walk one lap around a high school track and can only donate $5 to those who wish to run marathons and donate more. Relay for Life is a 24-hour event where our team will walk for a full 24 hours. Each team participating in the event is required to have at least one team member on the track at all times… yes, even at 3:30 in the morning… remember, cancer does not sleep. Our team members will camp out overnight at the school while live music and movies are played. You’ll be inspired and motivated, and will have a good time while doing it. We encourage you to come join us… whether you choose to donate to our team, or come and walk for a couple of hours with Patty (even a lap or two), or become a full-fledged team member.
Please join Team Hope Garden on Wednesday, September 14th at Applebee’s in Fountain Valley for lunch or dinner, or both! Present this flyer and Applebee’s will donate 15% of your check to Team Hope Garden!

The fine print… you must have a flyer with you in order for your check to count so be sure to print this flyer and bring it with you. If you plan on joining us for both lunch and dinner, make sure you have two flyers. Simply click on the image above, a new page will open, and print it from your browser. Team members will also have extra flyers with them that day so be sure to see a team member if you forgot your flyer.

We will also have a silent auction and raffle between 6-9pm. Raffle winners need not be present to win. Hope to see you there!
