LOCKPORT – In an effort to rouse interest in the annual American Cancer Society Relay for Life fund-raiser, “Paint Lockport Purple,” a promotional event before the relay, will take the form of a photo contest this year.
On June 1 and 2, businesses are asked to decorate their workplace in purple, the official color of Relay For Life, using this year’s theme, “Relay Through the Decades,” as inspiration for a purple tableau pegged to a particular decade.
To participate, businesses must submit up to three photos by June 12.
Relay For Life, set for June 20-21 at Emmet Belkanp Intermediate School, is an overnight celebration where individuals and teams camp out, take part in fun activities, and take turns walking or running around the track, relay-style, to raise funds to fight cancer.
Photo judging by the public will occur at the relay, where the photos will be displayed and tickets for voting will be sold, with all the proceeds going to Relay For Life of Lockport.
