Light the Town Purple - May 2019
Friday, June 12th should have been the Grand Island Relay For Life event and even though we can't gather at Veteran's Park we can still show cancer survivors #HOPEnotCancelled.
Join Relay For Life of Grand Island in lighting the Town purple in honor and in memory of Cancer Survivors on Friday, June 12th by picking up a lumi kit (luminaria & purple glow stick) for a $5 donation per kit (if possible) to decorate and display on your porch, by your mailbox, in the window, etc. at Dusk.
4 easy ways to take part... - Pick up a lumi kit at 2225 Second Street or at 42 Flanigen Lane (plastic bin on the front porch) and make your own luminaria. - Get lumi kits delivered (on the Island) by sending a message Lynn Dingey with your address and how many you'd like. - If you live out of Town or don't think anybody will see it at your house...Order online and it will be displayed in the Town Commons June 12th at Dusk. Last day to order - Thursday, June 11th. A.C.S. Grand Island Relay Site - Want to decorate your own luminaria but would rather we display it in the Town Commons, feel free to return the decorated luminaria to the box at 2225 Second Street or 42 Flanigen Lane and we'll take it from there.
Three ways to make a donation...- cash, - check made out to the American Cancer Society, - online at A.C.S. Grand Island Relay Site and follow the steps to order a luminaria. The important part is going to be where it asks who you are dedicating it to.. if you're picking up a lumi kit put PICKUP, it you're having it delivered put DELIVERED, if you want us to make it and display it in the Town Commons put the name of the person you are dedicating the luminaria to and we'll be sure it's there. Let's Light our Town Purple!! **Rain Date - Saturday, June 13th.

Giorgio Panepinto, owner of Pinto Sanitation, recently presented Lynn Dingey, co-chair of Relay For Life of Grand Island with a $2,000 check and the news that they plan to hold another Pink Tote sale in the spring, Watch for more information and help us turn the Island pink, one pink tote at a time.
Donated garbage totes for the annual Father's Day Lawnmower Race.
A big thank you from Relay For Life to Pinto Sanitation for the$2000 donation and for being a sponsor at several different Relay events over the past year. This includes supplying outhouses for the Purple Ribbon Warrior 5K and totes for trash collection at the Father’s Day Lawnmower Races. Without the support of the Grand Island businesses and all the great residents of Grand Island, our Relay wouldn’t be the successful event that it is.
