Relay for Life to kick off Saturday at MontBleu

A benefit for the American Cancer Society will be held from 3:30 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday at the MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa showroom.

The event will serve to kick-off the Aug. 7 Relay for Life event and will feature a meet-and-greet time for community members to sign up teams for the relay or get information about the relay, cancer and cancer society research.

A family friendly concert will begin at 5:30 p.m. Prior to the concert, band members of the three featured bands will be available to talk to about their songs and instruments.

Cancer survivors and patients can get free tickets to the concert and one-day passes to Kahle Community Center at the survivors’ table during the meet-and-greet time. Survivors may also sign up for an invitation to the survivors’ dinner on Aug. 7 during Relay for Life.

All are invited. Concert tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children. Cancer survivors and patients are invited guests.

For information, call Maryon Tilley, survivorship chairperson and team captain at (775) 828-2203.
