I hate cancer! I have had it twice, and cancer runs in my family. I hope that one day, cancer will be eradicated and there will be a cure to cancer! You can help to find a cure, just by eating a baked potato in Northeast Harbor at the Neighborhood House on Thursday, April 9th.

That's the night that Bar Harbor Banking and Trust's Relay for Life Team "Banking For a Cure" hosts the 8th annual Spudtacular Supper starting at 5:30 p.m. Dinner consists of a jumbo baked potato with your choice of more than a dozen toppings, along with a drink and dessert for a suggested donation of $9.00 per person.  No reservations or advance purchase required.  Come on out for dinner and help the team!  For more information call Deb Scott-Henderson at 667-0660 x2267.

During the Supper there will also be a silent auction, raffle and 50/50 drawing.  Numerous items donated by local businesses will be available for bidding.  All proceeds from this Spudtacular Supper and silent auction will benefit the American Cancer Society.

The annual Relay For Life event in Hancock County will be held on May 29-30, 2015 at the Ellsworth Elementary-Middle School.  The Ellsworth event raises around $100,000 annually.  Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature activity with more than 4 million people in over 20 countries participating each year in this global phenomenon to raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer.  Relay For Life offers everyone in the community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams camp out overnight and take turns walking or running around the track during an 18-hour period. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Teams of people from all walks of life have fun while raising much-needed funds to fight cancer and raise awareness of cancer prevention and treatment.  Those who participate celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost to the disease, and are doing what they can to help fight back against this disease.  To learn more about Relay For Life go to www.relayforlife.org.
