Saturday Supplemental: Heights Happenings

Here are a couple of worthwhile events that you need to know about:

Saturday, May 2, Noon- 5 PM: Bras and Boxers- Kick Off for American Cancer Society's Relay for Life of Greater Heights
  • Bras and Boxers are now being collected (along with a $5 donation per item) to help raise cancer awareness. The undies will be strung down 19th Street on May 2 in conjunction with Heights 1st Saturday. The display, a quirky fundraiser modelled after an event in Vicksburg, MI, where almost 2000 bras were stretched across the Mississippi River on U.S. 80, will jump start The Relay for Life of Greater Heights cancer awareness fundraiser
  • Check the website at the link above for opportunities to volunteer. Stringing the bras and boxers together is just one way you can help!
  • If you would like to make a donation, you can contact Barbara Dickens (2009 Chair of the Greater Heights Relay Committee): 281.630.5120 or -or- check HERE for drop off locations.
