If you are not familiar with the event, and cancer has touched your life, then you might just want to check it out and come to it. May 21-22 at Central Park. A 24 hour event where teams have someone walking on the track at all times. All kinds of stuff is going on during the event and all for such a good cause. See what it is all about at: www.relayforlife.org/huntingtonbeachca. On the site you will find a link for the event schedule (on the left). If you'd like to become involved you can join as a participant. If it is not something you can get involved in, you can consider a donation, help out a fellow local. Here is my link: Donate HERE . Everything is so appreciated (I personally have already lost too many in my life to cancer!). Thank you!!

Lastly, looking for deals around town? Surf City Savings , the city's discount program, continues to grow. See all the participating vendors, www.SurfCitySavings.com , and save some money.
