Coming soon — Pinecrest Relay for Life

Coming soon to a park near you, the 2012 Pinecrest Relay for Life.

On Feb. 25, Evelyn Greer Park becomes a local movie house. We open at noon with a team lap, Olympic style where team members take a turn around the track showcasing their team banner.

This year’s theme is Romantic Movies and the red carpet will take you to the teams as they bring their movies to life with food and fun. The curtain rises on entertainment center stage featuring our schools and community businesses. Our Silent Auction opens with donation highlights — Total Wine’s 20-person wine tasting, a three-day cruise from Royal Caribbean, jewelry, spa items, sports lessons, dinners and more.

Our featured concert, with VIP tickets available, begins at 6:30 p.m. This year’s featured bands are DNR with Dr. Ziffer, David Messinger, Christian LeFournis, James McGhee, Brian Whaley and Jeff Bartel; Note-orious with Michael Kambour, Sergio Gonzales-Arias, Nelson Lazo, Scott Kenward, Ron Tolchin, Barry Katazen and Jack Ziffer; followed at 9:30 p.m. by Badges with Dr. Fred Steinberg, Dr. Rick Fraga, John Gabriel, Angel Urquia and Dr. Jorge Demoia.

Overflow parking is available one mile from the park at MorningStar Renewal Center, 7275 SW 124 St. The new Pinecrest shuttle bus which will pick you up at the circle in front of the Center and drop you off at the park. The last shuttle returns to the Center at 10 p.m. We will also have bicycle valet service at the park.

Our special tribute to those touched by cancer begins at 5 p.m. with a ceremony, a dedicated survivor lap, a free dinner and survivor gifts. At 9 p.m., we have a beautiful Luminiaria ceremony with thousands of candles circling the track. These lights celebrate a survivor or honor someone special; they are only $5 and can be purchased online, from a team or at the event.

All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society to support cancer research and community resources for those touched by cancer. Thanks to event sponsor Gus Machado Ford for continued support. There are still opportunities for sponsors, teams and volunteers.
