I’m sure many of We Love DC’s readers are familiar with regional events related to Relay for Life, one of the most well-known charity events for the American Cancer Society. The locally-based Relay’s often happen at universities, but this event is actually designed to go beyond campus and into the DC/VA community contribute against the disease. The Arlington Relay will be held at Wakefield High School, June 19th and 20th, and so far, it has raised nearly $40,000 for ACS.
Even if you don’t have time to throw a team together, there are still plenty of opportunities left to contribute, rght up until the day of the event. There will be a silent auction on-site at the Relay on June 19th from 3-7pm, including rounds of golf at exclusive country clubs (Old South CC and Hidden Creek CC), Redskins Box Tickets, signed Alex Ovechkin Capitals jersey and gift certificates from some of the nicest Arlington-based restaurants.
For more information, check out the details at the Relay for Life website.
