For the fifth consecutive year, North End resident, Marie Parker Orlandi and her daughter Karen Parker Meyers walked on June 21-22 with their Relay for Life Team “Miles of Memories”to benefit the American Cancer Society at the Burlington High School Track.
We do this in memory of those we love and lost and in honor of our loved ones that are currently fighting and surviving cancer. We are determined to have more happy memories and birthdays together.
In addition to our relay, our fundraising efforts this year included a multifamily yard sale at Karen’s house, an ice cream fundraiser at Orange Leaf, selling of silver inspirational bracelets, and a very successful dinner at Filippo’s Ristorante,which attracted numerous donors who not only participated by attending but also by generously donating an abundance of raffle prizes and are recognized below most thankfully for their generosity by Marie and Karen. We would like to thank those many businesses, associations, family and friends that helped make the event such a success.
Generous donations were received from Cafe Paradiso, North End Athletic Association, My Cousin’s Place, Winfrey’s Chocolate’s, Arbella Insurance, Lit Boutique, Pet Life Store, Yappy Pups Playhouse, Trader Joe’s, Injeanius, Matter of Face, Heart & Sole, Drydock Cafe, Antico Forno, Terra Mia, North End Fish & Sushi, Ensemble, Mike’s Pastry, Philips Hair Salon, Amici, Laser Enhanced Therapies, CocoaNuts, Hanover Wine & Spirits, Bella Vista and various wonderful gifts generously donated by Patty & Nick LaRosa, Alma D’Antonio, Anna Martignetti, Trish and Buddy Clemmer, Tina Argiro, Marie Testa and Karen Meyers.
