Houston Relay for Life is tonight

LOGO Relay for Life

HOUSTON – Months of fund raising for the American Cancer Society will culminate in a party in the park this Friday night as the Chickasaw County Relay for Life event will begin at 6 p.m.
Relay for Life is a friendly competition between teams made of school, civic, church and family groups who raise funds for ACS and join in to celebrate and honor cancer survivors and remember those who are no longer in the battle.
The evening will feature team parades and skits and live entertainment from Pontotoc’s Legends of the Blues who will begin their musical set about 7:30 p.m.
Times are approximate and based on how many surivivors participate in the victory lap at 6 p.m. and how many teams are involved in skits.
Cancer survivors (and one care-giver, if needed) are invited to a special reception in their honor at the Houston Civic Center from 4:15 – 5:45 p.m. Survivors will make the first lap around the paved track behind the Civic Center about 6 p.m.
After skits and entertainment, the luminaria service and sky lantern service will begin about 9:15 p.m.
The public is invited to join in the fun. There is no admission and concessions will be available for purchase during the event.
Luminaries are still available for purchase with a $10 donation in honor or memory of a loved one and may be obtained from any Relay team member or from Linda Hicks at Houston Funeral Home on South Jackson Street.
