Marriott Party to Kickoff Relay Season



By Maureen Chodaba

The Marco Island office of the American Cancer Society invites you to attend the 2017 Relay For Life Kickoff Party, Monday, November 7 from 5-7 PM at the Marco Island Marriott.

The Relay For Life is a global movement in the fight against cancer. It began in 1985 when Dr. Gordy Klatt walked and ran around a track for 24 hours to raise money for the American Cancer Society. The 2016 Relay For Life of Marco Island raised over $308,000 in the fight against this dreadful disease, placing third in fundraising for the State of Florida. The 2017 Relay For Life of Marco Island kicks off as a fundraising season that will culminate in a six-hour celebration of life next April.

Please join us on November 7 to learn more about this phenomenal event. Ignite your passion! Enjoy complimentary appetizers and beverages while you learn what it means to “Paint Your World Purple!”

Please note there will be no valet parking at the Marriott for the kickoff event. Please self park for a discounted rate of $2.50 per car. Bring a friend and carpool!

Don’t be a fool! Mark your calendars now for the 2017 Relay For Life of Marco Island to be held on April 1, 2017 at Veterans Community Park from 4-10 PM.
