Tonight: Relay for Life fundraiser at Buffalo Wild Wings

buffalo-wild-wingsGrovers, Marygrove’s Relay for Life team, is hosting its last fundraiser tonight (July 24th) from 5-9 PM.

For this fundraiser, the Grovers are partnering with Buffalo Wild Wings. If you order food from their Ferndale location (9 mile and Woodward), Buffalo Wild Wings will donate 15% of the proceeds to the American Cancer Society in our name.

You can pick up a voucher from Jan Machusak in the Student Center Building; this must be presented when ordering so that they can identify our people and total the donation accordingly.  We hope to fill up the restaurant so that we can raise funds to care for those who are living with cancer and to research for a cure.

Support Marygrove College’s Relay for Life Team!

relay-for-lifeThe Marygrove College Relay For Life Team, the Grovers, participates in Relay for Life because each member has been affected by cancer, personally, or through a family member or a good friend.  We know you have been too!  The Relay for Life is a 24 hour event that holds in remembrance all the people who live with cancer, those who care for them and for all our loved ones who have died.  Cancer never stops so for that 24 hour period neither do we!  Relay for Life will take place this Saturday June 15 beginning at 10 AM until Sunday June 16 ending at 10 AM. 

The Relay For Life raises money for people living with cancer, for research efforts and to care for those who have survived cancer.
