If you’re looking for family friendly fun this weekend then make sure to visit Cheers to a Cure on August 1 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. This year starts the first annual beer and wine tasting to benefit the American Cancer Society. Activities include numerous raffles, a DJ, a barbeque, and there will be plenty of beer and wine from local pubs. There will also be juice tasting and a bounce house for the kids.
The event is organized by Emily Wainwright who was a chairperson for Relay for Life. When the group moved to Gray, she chose to start her own event so there would still be a presence in Windham. She hopes that this event will help feed into this fall’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Portland.
Tickets to Cheers to a Cure are $20 (all inclusive) or $10 (per tailgate buffet) and can be purchased at the event or through the event website. The event is located on Commons Avenue, Windham in the Metayer Family Eye Care parking lot across from Domino’s. For more information visit the Cheers to a Cure Facebook page or visit www.cheerstoacure.org and don’t forget to stop by on Saturday!
For those who cannot attend this year but wish to help the cause, there are plenty of other ways to get involved. At the Cheers to a Cure website there are T-shirts for sale and links for donations, both of which benefit the American Cancer Society. Mark your calendars for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on October 18 and don’t forget about Cheers to a Cure next summer as well!
