Old World to donate to ACS Relay for Life

So when you think of Old World do you only think of Oktoberfest or Daschund Races? If so, you are missing out on a lot of other stuff they have to over in terms of events. One of frequent events at Old World is their Comedy Improv nights, one such show, next week on April 9, is going to be bigger and better than ever. They are going to move it to the festival hall for that show because they have offered to help turn it in to a fundraiser - donating part of the ticket sales to our Huntington Beach Relay For Life, coming up in May. Cool huh? Come to this show and laugh your hind quarters off (this will be my first time seeing the show and those I've talked to that have been all have said how funny it is). By printing out this flyer: http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii295/thelocalhb/comedyimprovcopy-2.jpg , and bringing it with you that night, it will help raise money our Relay. There is a space on the flyer to put the Relay team name you want to support. For example, those of you who are my friends would put "The HB Locals" and my team would get credit. For those of you who are already part of the Relay, put your team name on there to receive credit. Miss Huntington Beach will also be there that night holding her own fundraiser (separate with a different flyer), so it should shape up to be a good night.
And with the spirit of giving, Old World is holding another fundraiser for Relay on May 2. Put it on your calendar. noon to 5 will be a Spring Boutique with about 40 vendors present. Do all your Mother's Day shopping or just pick up some cool stuff for yourself. All vendors are donating a portion of their profits to the Relay. To see the types of vendors present, you will find the list linked to
www.RelayForLifeHB.com. Please come out and support our local businesses while helping in the fight against cancer. A win win as I see it.
And finally, (my emails aren't usually this long), but since we are on the topic of Relay for Life, have you been to one yet? In particular the Huntington Beach one. Once again we will be in Central Park - super cool location for a Relay. The event will be May 15/16, noon to noon. If you have been touched by cancer in or around you, you will want to come to this event. Very fun, very meaningful. Join a team or sign up as an individual. There are many ways to get involved. The official Relay site is:
www.relayforlife.org/huntingtonbeachca. There you can sign up or just donate if you cannot make it out that weekend. Check the schedule on the site to see all the fun stuff scheduled. I'm chairing the event this year, so feel free to ask me questions about it or how you can become involved. Thank you ahead of time for all the support from our Huntington Beach locals.
