Relay for Life
Tomorrow night will be a fun time. Relay for Life in Greer always is. If you haven't made plans yet to come, go ahead and decide now to be there. Here are a few things you need to know about before you get there:
- This year's event will be at the practice field behind Greer High School, not at Dooley Field! Be sure you get the word out about the change. Due to construction at Dooley Field, the organizers of Relay had to change the location this year.
- Come prepared to eat. The whole purpose of the event is to raise as much money as possible for The American Cancer Society, and all the proceeds made from food sales go to the charity. The Freedom relay team will be making Philly cheese steak sandwiches that are as good as you will find outside of Pennsylvania. In addition to food, there will be plenty of other things for you to spend money on that night, and it all goes to the cause.
- Starting time is 6:00. That's when the music begins and food will be available. I believe the opening ceremonies start later than that. Even if you can't get there at 6:00 or 7:00 come as soon as you can. There will be plenty going on all evening.
- No Hit Wonders will hit the stage around 10:00. If you want to hear some classic 80's music poorly imitated you need to be there. If you want it to sound exactly as it did on the radio in 1985, you better listen to your ipod instead. We'll be doing nine songs that anyone between the ages of 35-50 should remember. It's gonna be fun.
The best part about Relay is just being out in the community hanging out and talking to people. Come hang out with us Friday.
